Springtime Pedal Power

March weather in southern Utah can be iffy. We might have perfect clear blue skies and temperatures in the 70’s, but we are just as likely have snow flurries in town with a foot of new powder in the mountains. 

Last week it snowed.

Today the weather was, well, perfect.

When the skies are so blue and the temperatures so balmy, how on earth could anyone resist hopping on a bicycle and enjoying the roads and trails around town?

No one is in the least bit of a hurry. What would be the fun in that?

Easy–going JD always waits for his riding buddies and their cameras as they lag behind.

In Little Valley we pass this beauty who would probably have appreciated a treat.

We continue our pedaling, cruising the wide open spaces of scenic Washington County.

    1. Yes indeed. It was a lovely day!

      In mere months, however, the air temperature will approach that found on the sun and I will be SO glad to be in Yellowstone!

    1. Absolutely! The eggs will be frying on the sidewalk before we know it!

      Speaking of which - Isn't there an actual "frying eggs on the sidewalk" festival somewhere in AZ during the summer?
