After recent rains, we again opted to head East on our rural routes, hoping for a better experience that that of our ride which I posted on my Climate Change is Real post.
We both had our new E-bikes this time and were eager to see how a longer ride went. Turns out that our ride was a much better experience this time, both in terms of comfort and scenery.

Taking in the views!
You never know what you’ll see
riding country roads.
Crops are jumping after the recent heavy rains
Cattle herds are chowing down on lush spring grass
Things are a bit wet, down on the farm
The horses stop to check out what manner of creature walks on two round legs
At a crossroads, kind of like life
Follow the straight and narrow
lone llama looks out of place
red-tailed hawk soars high above, looking for lunch
our transportation on this day (33 km or 20 miles ridden)
this prairie pothole has grown since the rains, but not much more birdlife on display
these old farm buildings have seen better days
as we stopped to look, we heard a familiar call and an American Avocet touched down, looking for some grub
a couple of ducks float serenely by
red-tailed hawk’s return
no shortage of red-winged blackbirds
this pothole seems to be getting choked out by weeds
blue winged teal floating on pond scum
these farm buildings seem to be in a relaxed state
canola (rapeseed) crop
this country roads tour was much more rewarding than our last.
