Tuesday's Ride

Today I finished up a long neglected project, the back yard. I'd been working on it for the last few days. I made a cover for the fire pit, cleaned both patios, sealed them, and repaired and stained the outdoor furniture.

I took off for a ride after lunch. I spent most of the ride exploring western Pierce and eastern Pepin counties. I stopped at the trout pond in Plum City.

I also explored a few new roads. I rode Big Coulee, Sylvester Hill, Lamphere, Hatchery and Holden roads. There was a lot of gravel in the corners on most of the roads. Lamphere and Sylvester Hill had a lot of 15 MPH, right angle, corners. Holden and Big Coulee were the better ones. I stopped on Holden road to take a few pictures of fall color. Most of the leaves are down. The most colorful thing left now is the Sumac.

I spotted a odd looking formation in the limestone along the roadway. It reminded me of the Hoodoos in Bryce Canyon National Park.

Here's a Bryce Canyon picture.

Here's the miniature version in the limestone...

I was home by 1700. Enough time left to make an apple pie tonight.
