I don’t know why, but I’ve always been intrigued by this rock near the top of Jacob’s Ladder Trail

Quite cold and foggy coming in this morning

I wasn’t able to ride on the trail because the snow was too deep.  I always feel nervous riding on the road because I’m worried about getting hit by a car.  I was particularly worried about getting hit this morning because of all of the fog.  But, I made it safely, although my hands were freezing and my feet were cold too.  When the winter commuting season begins next year, I will need to buy some ski gloves and wool socks.  http://www.strava.com/athletes/424498/latest-rides/780c8c7d9d1dab3c1f2aed03da85bc16e22554e9

Kind of funny

We have some neighbors that don’t like bikers.  In fact, they once blocked the trail next to their house with logs and rocks in an attempt to stop bikers from using the trail which passes by their house.  The logs and rocks were later removed.  Last night, on my way home, I decided to take the trail by their house, because I thought it would be faster.  I was hoping that these neighbors wouldn’t be outside their house and that, if they []
