Cooper Mill Road Overlook


I bought this ridiculous fat bike, and hardly ever ride it, which is stupid, because I live 5 miles from the Bald Eagle State Forest with its 300+ miles of unpaved roads, jeep trails, mountain bike trails, and nice scenery.

So, I got the Ice Cream Truck out of the barn, put some air in the tires, and went out in the woods.

It was a long, slow grind up the gravel road to the overlook. The mountain made a point of reminding me how out of shape I am.

The roads are actually in really good shape. I may try this again on my Cross Check.

Thick Mountain Trail


Klinutus and I made use of the President’s Day holiday to go wander around the Tall Timbers Natural Area, which has some of the only old growth forest left in the State.

The trees are very big. I’m not exactly a small person, but I’m hard to find in the picture.

It was kind of a winter wonderland in the woods.

I GPS logged our whole hike, and now the map is ever so slightly more complete.

If you like pictures, there are a few more in my gallery.
