Just in time, I’ve grown accustomed to the summer heat. This morning I took advantage of the low traffic on a national holiday and headed out rather early. I rode out to the River Trails as far as Portland Avenue and back. While it took nearly four water bottles, at least I can tolerate the heat.
Most of the wild flowers are gone now. However, these planted flowering shrubs are still putting on a show. There are other colors, but these really caught my eye. Perhaps tomorrow I can get out early enough to make it out to Draper Lake and back. I’m sure the bikeway is still evolving.
We should be able to see the Independence Day firework at Barnes Park from our front yard this evening.
