A little Asphalt... A Little Gravel... A Little Sunshine!
This past Saturday Snowcatcher and I journeyed out to Chatfield Reservoir for a warm autumn road ride. Temps were in the 50s and low 60s. It was a perfect fall day. As I write this blog, however, I'm enjoying a hot beverage after shoveling close to 9.5 inches of snow that fell overnight. It appears cycling season is winding down. Following are some pics.

Occasionally, the ubiquitous bovine happens to be a Texas longhorn.

After a final zig and zag, we turned around to head back to town.
A harbinger of things to come is 9.5 inches of fresh snow on November 17th.
Dieter and Wolfgang like to race to the snow stake.
Dieter won the sprint; Wolfgang buys the beer for the weekend.
The final snow tally for the storm was a little over 9 inches.
I think we may be months away from a similar day. Thanks for reading...
