Pelican ride

I meant to post these pictures last week. I rode about 80 miles out & back to Watertown on Saturday last & caught a some great pictures of American Pelicans. I stuck to the Luce Line trail so the course was flat & on crushed limestone. The limestone is nice & smooth, but sometimes is still feels a little heavy to me. But a nice ride.
