John was boiling away in Vegas with temps in the 90s and higher (eek!) and we had upper 60s and low 70s. Perfect temps for biking, although it was a bit breezy. I was so glad the rain finally passed through so I could get on the bike!
Ready to roll!
The paths were still kind of wet, especially in the shady parts.
This is a coal silo restoration project along the path:
The canal is really high right now. I don’t know how they route the water because the Hudson can be really high and the canal will be low, even if it rains. However, now it is really full.
While I was riding, I got a call from John, so I stopped at some outside tables for a chat!
There is a cool building for sale nearby as well:
Wouldn’t it be cool to fix this up and live in the top and have some cool artist shops below?
I headed towards Lake George, but turned around before the big downhill parts because the path was freshly black topped last year and it gets mossy and slick when there are days of rain, so I just played it safe since I was alone.
It was time for my treat! I headed to Martha’s for the first time this year.
Nom, nom, nom!
I swung back around to Glens Falls and decided to check out the LARAC festival. I was going to go on Sunday, but decided to scope it out on Saturday instead.
Always interesting stuff.
I love these little mushrooms. They look giant in the picture, but really are about a foot tall.
Someone also had handmade guitars there, which I haven’t ever seen at this show before.
They guy said “Go ahead and play!” So I picked one up and noodled a little bit, even though it was not the type of guitar I play. It had steel strings – owie!!. Then I asked the man how much they were and he said $4000!! 😯 He was letting anyone pick them up and play them, such as my sweaty bikey self, and I don’t know how he had the nerve to do that with how much they were!
Good thing about biking is that I think 3 times before buying something because it has to make it home 🙂 I decided I don’t really need to be buying anything right now as we need to save lots of pennies for the things we have to have in our new house. So, it was time to pedal home.
Quick detour to a part of the path I don’t go on too often. You can see the path winding down. Those moutains way in the back are Vermont:
Bonus manicure shot! I totally forgot to get my stats off the computer and then I reset it on Sunday for that day’s ride, so all I have is the total mileage of 30.1 miles! And a very enjoyable day!
