July Challenge — Whitish/Grayish 2.0

Raleigh in front of garage door

Gray siding

Inspired by Nancy’s whitish/grayish I went in search of more on the Diamond Back

DB in front of mountain of crushed stone at the Grant Township Garage

It is a brilliant white, but appears gray

Closer view

Service Bay doors at Township garage

(Oh, did that sign say Private Property — No Trespassing?  Ooooops  just noticed that on the way out 😉 )

White wind turbines beyond soybeans and North Fork trees — Several miles away located on the crest of a glacial moraine — the favored location for the most consistent and strongest winds

Party Bridge with gray appearing rails and deck

Grenade!!!!!!   Oh, wait. . . . . .

View south down the North Fork

Diamond Back (and rider) arrive back home

Enjoyable ride with moderate success  🙂

Interesting article:

Gray vis a vis Grey

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.

    Nice pics with the correct complementary bike colour to go with each. The North Fork is looking good! Glad to hear Sock Monkey is well – hope he is not too stinky with all the heat and humidity around.

    Perhaps it is because I sometimes drink Earl GrEy tea; perhaps because I love reading British mystery novels in the grEy of the evening; Perhaps I should start using greie for my color. All is good. Thanks for yet another interesting lesson Rich.

    Great photos and I really like the pile of greie gravel ;’-0

      I asked a friend in Australia how they spell gray/grey — they spell it with an E — actually, I was the one who questioned whether I knew how to spell it or not. ( it is spelled I T incidentally) 🙂
