july 11

Today housemate and I did some more of the planet trek bike route. Starting in Verona, we headed west to Neptune, then came back, ate lunch, and headed east to Uranus. We went up to County PD road, and didn't find Uranus. It must have got broken or stolen or something. It was supposed to be around Goose Lake, which we passed on the way to PD. It was a glorious Wisconsin summer day. The temperature was 75 F, winds 10 mph from the NNW gusting to 18, when we started. Dewpoint was 57, and continued to drop throughout the day, to 44 F at 6 pm (while temperature was still 78).

We saw some more glade mallow (see Monday's ride for a description), but I didn't take a picture. I love frogs so had to take a picture when I saw one:

The bike path goes through a lot of wetlands so there are lots of birds to see. Here's a Bohemian waxwing.

And it's cousin, the cedar waxwing. They were all hanging out together.

And of course there were flowers.

We sat on a bench with a nice view.
