05.11.2021 Two from the Neighborhood

I set out yesterday morning for Chesterfield Gorge because I had heard about the Painted Trilliums being in flower there.  I might not have gone for that ride and just waited for some closer to home (it’s an hour ride) … Continue reading

05.04.2021 Tunnel of Love
