Another busy week.  On Monday I had thirteen machines in my group.  The weather was a bit iffy and very windy which kept some at home but the rest of us had a great ride.   We got to see some javelinas and had a really good look at a diamondback rattlesnake.  It was really surprising to see it as the day wasn't very warm but he was sheltered on a rock bluff above the river and he was right in front of his hidey hole which he went back into when he felt threatened.
Aileen feels that her knee is making some progress and we hope that continues to improve.  We've had a couple of card nights and we went to the Riverbottom Grill on Friday night for fish and chips.  Aileen took her own meal as there is nothing gluten free for her.
My friend Richard J and I made a reconnaissance ride on Thursday south of Florence checking out a new route for me.  I will be taking the main group there tomorrow and am expecting a large number of machines as there seems to be quite a bit of enthusiasm for it.

A brief burst of sunshine while we were riding on Monday

People have made different types of memorials with rocks

Last of the Friday sunsets

These last four were taken this evening.  I walked out to see what kind of sunset we'd have with the clear sky
