I took a short loop alone this evening, it was maybe a little misty, but the roads were dry. I went down Harrell to Stipp and on to the Lake, I saw only some geese and a turtle in Moore’s Creek at the bridge. I heard a big owl hooting in valley as I started up the hill, and stopped to listen. Dan Schaffer drove by, and stopped to say hi. Moore’s Creek is definately easier to climb than either Stipp or Schwartz Ridge. I took Snoody back north and home, a really calming ride that insured a good nite’s sleep.
