November 20th – A few stones from Stonehenge

For ages, the meaning and mystery of Stonehenge has alluded us. How were those big stone moved together?

September 25th – The Middle Fork (Shapeless Ride)

Put a fork it in…let’s kick fall off with an ode the Middle Fork of the Willamette. We’ll ride the newly opened middle fork path starting at the Autzen Footbridge at 6:30pm and head down the Willamette, crossing south through Springfield down to Dorris Ranch and parallel the “Fork” to Clearwater Park, before heading back to the Growler Underground in Downtown Springfield around 8:30. This ride is a little longer (13.7 miles / 1.5 hours) so we’ll get an earlier start than normal.

Middle ForkIt doesn’t really look like a “shape,” right? Ah yes, life happened this month and I didn’t gather time for “shaping.” That said, I’m sure the purr of the Willamette combined with the technicolor foliage will more than make up for absent photoshop cosmetics of yours truly. :) Shapeless it is!
