Biking - First miles of the season

Today really felt like spring, with temps in the mid-50s and lots of sun. Holly and I got out for a short relaxed ride around some back roads in Burnt Hills, the first ride of the season for us both. The signs of spring were everywhere - high-running streams, disappearing snow piles, bright yellow willows ready to burst into bloom, and lots of people outside, whether walking dogs, cleaning up around the yard, or just enjoying the weather.

It's only March 17, and it's too early to be completely optimistic about it, knowing what can still happen when we least expect it. But for today, at least, it was nice to get back on the road again.
