Winter Rambling

winterintro

After a November and December that looked as if winter might be choosing to bypass Michigan, the new year has already brought some decent snow fall. Not enough to satisfy my cross-country skiing friends, not sure there’s ever enough for them, but enough to allow those of us with access to girthly wheeled fat bikes to enjoy riding over snowy fat bike trails in the woods or, in this case, on snow packed dirt roads (also knows as snirt roads) that surround many small towns in rural Michigan like mine.

A Fat Morning Ride

I recently got out for a midmorning fat bike ride on a local trail loop. I wasn’t out for all that long, just a little over an hour, but it was enough to stretch the legs out and enjoy the crisp winter temperatures and fresh snow. Of course that fresh snow made it hard to find the trail at times! Thank goodness for those orange markers on the trees!

Here are a few pics that I took with the Fuji X-T10.

Added Faves From The Snow

A black and white shot from distance.

Saturday brought the first snow storm of the year to central Michigan. Visibility was such that I didn’t feel all that safe braving the roads on my bike, so I headed down to my bike shop to pick up some new winter gloves for a potential ride on Sunday. I had heard that there was a group ride being organized at the Alma Grand Prix of Cyclocross race course, so I figured after I picked up my gloves I’d head over to the course with the Fuji X-T10 for some photo.

Fave Fotos No. 1

Due to some insane wind and rain, this week has not been the best for riding and shooting. However, I still managed to get a few shots that I dig in. No, they’re not pro-level shots, given that they were taken by someone not a pro, but they are shots I like.

Michigan’s Burning

During my Tuesday dirt road ride I rode past yet another dirt road barn/garage that appears to have gone up in flames. It’s always sad to see so much damage and property loss. The only good thing about the two incidents is–from what I can tell–there was no loss of human or livestock life, to the nearby homes.
