Cycling: A Short Katy Loop

3101NE50thNot really much of an adventure today, just out on NE 4th to the Katy Trail, then up to NE 50th. I realized that I hadn’t seen that stretch of road in some thirty or forty years. So when I got through the golf course and up near the Firefighter Museum, I turned right. It wasn’t that far past the Softball Hall of Fame and under Interstate 35. Just past a relatively new charter bus line (Village Tours) depot and up a steep hill was this fine old local stone house (above left).

Out behind a neat little house this old stone barn was hidden in the trees. I had to get down in the foliage just to get a good look at it.

I’ll start seeing a lot of this carpeting in rural fields this time of year.

As I followed the road where it turned north, I was surprised by this aging house that fronts Air Depot at the driveway for Bridlewood Equestrian. More horse boarding, of course. It was a fairly quiet ride back home from there.
