A Thousand Sunsets

I'm sure everyone on Facebook has posted a similar picture of their vacation.  I thought about not posting it here, but then I realized that every sunset is unique and has special meaning for those who took it or saw it.

Bike Trail Tales

I live in Northampton and work in Easthampton and I like to ride my bike, so last summer and fall I watched with keen interest the progress on the construction of the bridge over Route 10 that would mark the installation of the final link in the trail between the two towns.  (I'm still mad at myself for not going to the official opening).

With the bridge now in place, I can now enjoy a peaceful ride without having to constantly worry about traffic.  As I discovered yesterday, though, there are perils on the bike path as well, as with this downed tree I had to deal with.

And don't let the cuteness fool you here: I'm sure this was a killer deer I barely escaped from (I didn't dare get any closer to take a better picture):
