July Challenge — White

The crushed stone appears gray in the photos — it is actually a brilliant white

Possibly quarried at Kentland, Indiana at the site of a meteor impact crater

(And yes, that is hard to believe — apparently its true)

The Township re-surfaced several of the roads with the crushed limestone, and it is far superior to the pea gravel it replaced

Nice surface for cycling now that the loose material has migrated to the sides — snowplows this winter will remove most of that

Further along the heron is still present at the creek

Very much enjoy all the entries you all have provided -- great to see the everyday cycling venues. Being in eastern Illinois, scenery certainly isn't our forte, but oh well, the roads are normally quiet. Look forward to more and more entries from all of you, I do have a few over on BL -- in Bill's Day Rides, and one journal.

    Meteor crater. You do come up with some interesting data Rich.

    I have some white/grey in mind for photos as well. Upcoming soon (I hope).

    I love the blue herons around here too. Prehistoric looking birds as they take flight.

      Thanks, who would ever have thought it!

      Manson Crater in Iowa is another example of an obscured impact site. The Sudbury Astrobleme in Canada has supplied lots of interesting rock specimens in the glacial materials.

      Pre-historic — I think so too, Pterodactyl airlines from the Flintstones!

    Very nice. I especially like the second photo – great point of view.

    Rich, I bet that ribbon of white road would make a glowingly good ride one night with a full moon.

      Ill bet it would!
      Been experimenting taking night time flash photos of the Diamond Back with the reflective tires. Turns out pretty cool but the light doesn’t scatter like yours did.
      Moon is in the first quarter today, — the glowing road, full moon, and the reflective tires would make an interesting picture.
      Arranging that photo might require some Gregorian contortioning! 🙂
