To celebrate my 44th one-year-closer-to-the-grave day today, I went for a long ride in the country (I often do that anyway, but today's ride was longer than usual) on one of my favorite roads. I grabbed my camera on the way out and took a bunch of pictures, so I thought you guys might like to see some of the local scenery. The forecast said some sun and small chance of rain, but it was overcast all day and drizzly in parts, so the pictures are a bit more drab than I was hoping for. Still a nice ride, though. Enjoy.
