My bike ridin' buddy ran a half-marathon yesterday, so I did the trail alone today. We usually talk the whole way, but the gnats would have kept that to a minimum this time anyway.
Yeah, spitting them out IS kinda fun.
Remember the picture with the snow still piled along the trail? Here's the same place now:
