Eve Photo Tour

I had a tough time getting out today, as a nap was much more inviting. I slept for a while and didn't get out until 4:00.

On River Road

I basically followed the Wabash Avenue Route. I recently had noticed an entrance to a bike trail on the downhill section of the Avenue between the Norfolk & Southern and CSX tracks, and I tried it out today. It was a little hilly and overgrown with some trash along the route. I only went about a quarter of a mile before it joined a gravel road heading south east - presumably towards the trail I rode last January between 9th and 18th. However, I didn't want to give the gravel a try with my skinny tires, so I'll have to come back on the other bike.

These pictures don't really capture the subtle light and color presented to me as I crossed the Wabash River. The water is up right now, and the currents and eddies downstream from the bridge were most interesting and mesmerizing.

On the west bank, there was a good crowd at the ice rink.
