Ah, the siren pictures of ER. Nice sky, ocean waves, empty open country roads, and lots of cows.


And what was I doing yesterday and today? W*rking!

Beautiful photos, nice scenery, and nice way to tell a story. I would've been a little nervous around those sharp horns, though. DW and I hope to do more biking this summer in the Virginia countryside.

Reminds me why the West and Mountain states are so great for outdoor activities. I may some day move back though this time I'd probably live in a 5th wheel so that I can hang out both in CO and CA.

Al, loved the "happy cows". Did you catch any of them standing by the fence saying "Bike!"?

By the way, when did they stop putting kick stands on bikes? 50 y/o memory of dad yelling at me for laying bike down instead of using the stand suddenly came to mind.

Thanks for the pics!

Many bikes still have kickstands, but many choose to avoid the extra weight. It's true that a bike on its side is more likely to be stepped on, tripped over, or driven over, but a bike on a stand is more likely to be blown or knocked over, so I've learned to always gently lay my bike down on the non-drive side.

The cow crossing the road was one of at least 80 who were crossing completely unsupervised (no humans within miles). They could have turned and gone down the road, but they creatures of habit. Those shots are actually from a movie, because I'd switched the camera to movie mode by mistake. I'll upload it now.

Here's the video. I thought I was taking a picture, and couldn't understand why the camera wasn't making the usual sounds.

The cough you hear is not from me, it's from one of the nearby calves. Note the wind.



Here's another. I say "Perfect" cause I thought I'd just gotten the perfect photo.

Nice pictures! Thanks Al, for sharing. What is your longest (distance) bike ride in one day?

All those cows in the stalls taking a tinkle at the same time? Nice pics. I think I could dig living out there.

Great pics, interesting (good) composition on many. Got cows?
