Winter Bikeing

Hi Grandma
Day 26 (12/07/14)

We have wanted to get back out on the trail and do some building since the end of July when I no longer had my Grandpa Daycare chores. We had gone out a couple of times since and had noticed everything was down either by nature or human nature it is hard to tell but I would be betting on a little bit of both. It has been pretty cold lately but today was supposed to get up in the thirties so we decided to grab Wade and hit the trail. It was a beautiful day, partly cloudy and a slight wind blowing from the south. Wade was a nice toasty fifty degrees in his pod. It hadn’t really been our intention to do any building but Wade was in a good mood and seemed to enjoy watching the whole process. We think he actually finds it kind of funny watching Grandpa build his sculptures. Eileen started it out with a cairn build and from there we just kept going. I rebuilt the one I call “Giacometti Build” and then moved down to the area where I had three other ones including “Tripod” and rebuilt a couple of those. There were two other people out on the trail that we saw. One was a skier with roller skis getting ready for the Birkie and the other was on bike. One of the highlights of the day was seeing a train go by. In all the days Wade and I had biked we had never seen a train so we got a kick out of that. We didn’t want to press our luck and end up with a crabby grandson however so we headed back.
