It doesn't much look like spring yet. Everything is still fairly brown and lifeless.
But there's been alot of activity in my beloved park while I was busy riding indoors.
Most of the snow is gone but here and there I saw little patches of the old stuff hanging on, waiting for the warmth to melt it away.
There's new things to see.
And old favorites to check out.
I don't know what moss does in the winter but even now, when everything else is waiting to come to life, the moss seems so green and fresh.
The wild boar are out but very far away from the main roads.
But throughout the park, there are signs that they were very busy rutting around all winter long, looking for what ever it is that they eat.
A normally dead end road was wide open this fine spring day. No, I didn't go in...it's been "taboo" since I started riding in the park and I just couldn't bring myself to ride further. The gate is electric..what happens if it closed when I was in there???
The loggers have created new paths to explore and I'm feeling very adventurous! I didn't take a picture of it but there was one muddy road in the whole park. I saw it to the left of where I was traveling and mentally noted that I was glad I wasn't heading that way. I later decided to ride a trail I'm not familiar with to get back home. Wouldn't you guess...I ended up on that muddy road! It was awesome!! Mud was flying, tires were slipping...and if I could have recorded the smell for you, I surely would have!
