Shaking Off the Rain

When I reached the small trail bridge the weather started to change. The wind kicked up and the rain came down steadily.

I waited it out, hoping it would let up after ten minutes or so, and it did. It was perfect weather for an afternoon bike ride, the wind a good 20 to 25 knots at times and the rain only a trace that evaporates as soon as it lands. This Loggerhead Shrike shook off the light rain.

I took the singletrack loop, which is full of variety and some nice surprises, twice–for a total of about five miles. Here is a video I recorded back in June of a stretch of this singletrack loop at West Delray Regional Park. I saw a lone MT biker today, and he commented on the “nice weather.” I asked if there were any others out, and he said “No, no one is ever out here.” Which is part of what I love about the trail through this 313-acre quiet county park wedged between a mulch farm and Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge.
