Opening Eve

I might be busy for tomorrow's Opening Day, what with babysitting and baking #2 son's 21st birthday cake, so I took a little spin up and down the trail in Lexington today. The weather was warm, the snow was melting, and the root cracks were sprouting. Though clear and mostly dry, the trail is bumpier than last year.

West from Bedford St., Lexington

Today: 4.4 miles. This year: 9.3 miles.

Opening Day

The Rails-to-Trails Conservancy declares March 30th as a nation-wide Opening Day for trail season. It might be nice or it might recall 1997's April Fool's Storm.
