Spring in Vermont is affectionately(?) known as Mud Season. It’s the time of year when many of our unpaved roads turn into brown soup for a couple of weeks, filled with ruts big enough to swallow small cars (and presumably bicycles as well). It’s tough to find much in the way of Kodachrome-worthy images. In the feature photo, you’ll see the local road crew is out trying to do some repairs. On the other side of that road grader, there’s a steep section of road that gets pretty much impassable for awhile every spring.
I realize I haven’t posted much this month, or even commented very often. My wonderful spouse has been dealing with some health issues, which has consumed a lot of time and energy for both of us. I’ve been able to get out and ride almost every day, but just haven’t quite found the time to stop and take many photos, or post the ones I have taken.
But, here’s just a few, taken over the last few days.
Nothing very colorful here. But, it’s 61 degrees (F) today, so spring is in the air. I’m looking forward to those April shower and May flowers. And it was the first ride of the year wearing shorts!
