Photography: Labor Day Ride

01LamaRanchThe ride was good exercise and my knee is getting more used to it, as you might expect. However, there was no real adventure here in terms of riding. Rather, I felt drawn to head up through Spencer and back on NE 63rd to Air Depot. Another mile north and taking one detour up a dead end road, and I eventually headed back home down Midwest Boulevard.02RiverNorth Instead of regaling you with descriptions of the images, I feel the need to let them speak for themselves, and simply give you some idea where they are taken. My talent means nothing if these images don’t speak a wordless message to your heart. I will tell you that the first image (above left) is a lama ranch in Spencer, since you may not recognize that critter’s profile hiding behind the tree.

    So love these pictures! At first, I thought it was a doe behind the fence! And the horses? I have been loving them since I was just a little girl. Magnificent creatures.
