End of Daylight Savings Time

Tonight we set our clocks back and things are going to get real dark for a while. I was fortunate enough to spend most of the afternoon daylight hours at Pocahontas State Park.

A group of trail gnomes met up at 1PM to give the Green trail some much needed love: drains were cut, berms were beefed up, water bars were built, loose roots were cut out, leaves were raked, and sight lines were cleared.

Although there was talk of a post-work ride, no one was able to stick around, so I went solo. I hit up the Green trail to check out our work, and then did a Red loop. That trail doesn’t get near the traffic, and the leaf coverage made it hard to see the trail in places.

It wasn’t a lot of miles, but it was a much needed ride for me. On the way back to the parking lot, I spotted a few deer and then decided I wasn’t quite ready to leave. I wandered over to Beaver Lake and watched the sun drop for a bit. A great way to spend the last remaining light before the end of Daylight Savings Time.
