MAA – Day 30 – The Canal Trail

Tough day! Good thing only 3 to go! Then I remembered seeing this on silos in several states along the way. I think I must have been getting a message.DSC01715

Today was a little shorter – only 85 miles but I had a mild headwind all day and seemed to do a lot of climbing. It was pretty, even though it wasn’t sure if it wanted to rain or not all day. I rode along the Mohawk River and Erie Canal mostly on a bike trail but about half of it was packed gravel and dirt so tough to keep speed up.

Towards the end, I was on a fun path! Albany has had a lot of rain recently, so portions of it were flooded. Walked around a few spots…

Made it to my sister’s house near Albany and she and her family had fun telling the SAG team lot’s of stories. And yes, they’re that much taller than me!

For a nice surprise, my high school buddy Tami came by! She only lives about a mile away from my sister. 🙂IMG_5451

While I was on the Canal Trail today, I must have seen a hundred cotton tail bunnies…DSC01746

so unfortunately, this song played over and over in my head all day – now it will in yours! You’re welcome! 🙂

Ride on!
