Other Wild-life

Jeff and I saw this unusual specimen on a lake lap yesterday. Hard to identify by the aluminum frame, coffee socks, riding clogs, and vintage helmet but we think it may have been a rare sighting of the "didn't plan on riding today" that is rumored to inhabit the northern shores of big spirit. We tried to stay close for better observation, but despite the look, the creature is extremely fast and dropped us on the hills.

wild life!

kari found this wildlife on a paddle around big spirit...

maybe sticking with the pedal would be easier on the eyes...because this sight would be much harder to find--

rolling laughter in this setting could be a very wet and cold experience!

anyone know where we are and how to get to this location by bike??

bonus point to anyone who can guess what else we saw on the water:

Things I love about Lake Laps

On today's lap...

Raccoon running through ditch, big doe standing on trail, a huge cat stalking mice, fish jumping out of the water at the grade, rabbit trying to outrun me, several flocks of various birds and a dog or 3. Not bad for a monday!
