After two days of blistering heat all across Oklahoma, we finally got some seasonable weather today (high of 79F), so I had no choice but to hit the road. Plus there was the small matter of wanting to work off some of last night’s apple pie.
Inspired by yesterday’s scenic drive to see Grandma Z in Kingfisher (40 miles NW of Edmond), I decided to head generally westward along Waterloo Road. I was out a bit longer than usual, and even began to get a bit sore near the end. This is good! I’m still out of shape if I want to get anywhere on a bike in Colorado, however.
My first wildlife sighting occurred before I’d even mounted my bike, in the form of a small frog perched on the latch of the gate by the garage! I was a bit worried about him, perched so high up. He’s clearly alive, since he moved around a bit, but was still on the latch when I returned 2 hours and 25 minutes later.
