Tour de Tolay

As much as I enjoy Tolay Lake Regional Park, it takes at least 45 minutes to drive there. That means I don’t get there too often because when heading for a park I usually opt for something closer. Also, Tolay—with practically no shade—tends to be very hot in the summer and—with dirt ranch “roads”—tends to be very muddy in the winter. However, with no rain in more than a month (other than a few light showers over the weekend), right now Tolay is dry and the temperature is quite moderate.

Thus, I scurried down there for some pedaling today.

They call me Old Grumble-Face. I have no idea why they do that....

    What a lovely day and place to choose for a ride. Impressed that you have such an open riding area so close to the big city. Hopefully it won’t become vineyards too. Love the cow pic! Cheers & happy pedaling.

    Green — Blue Skies — Sunshine — looking very very good!
    Chicago Natural History Museum called, they are looking for a missing Diplodocus bone. 😉

      Tell Chicago I left the bone on the trail, just a few feet from where I found it. Should still be there, unless my dog made it down to the park.

    Nice ride and photos. Diplodocus was a new one to me ;’-)

      Yeah, we learned about Brontosaurus, but your dinosaur-enthusiast grandkids will know about Diplodocus.

    How nice to have a place all to yourself in an area with a lot of people. Very concerning about the lack of rain though. I read a fairly scary article in the NY Times the other day about CA’s lack of rain and future implications.
