Back on November 19, I took to ridin' the Fall Finale Forty(ish)-Mile Country Path Ramble route solo. Figuring you'd what a reconn report, I provided the description, and I included the photos. I tried to communicate the delightfulness of this ride. But when I compare my memory of the ride against the reports, it seems like words and photos are not enough. Allow me to appeal to another one of your senses.
When you are out there Ramblin' across the prairie, it sounds like this...
Really. It is quite amazing, and I'm not sure why I haven't mentioned this before. Listen to all of it, and don't miss the sound of the far-away train whistle at the very end.
You really don't want to miss this. The long range weather forecast is improving. The temperatures are going down, but so is the chance for rain. Feeling optimistic.
