I like to go on bike rides around the area whenever time permits and the weather cooperates. On May 17 and 24 I took my camera along to capture some bicycle-eye views of Saline County scenery on my way from Marshall to Blackwater. Highlights: 1) chased by two dogs, 2) saw smoke from a field fire, 3) startled a vulture who in turn startled me, but I managed to avoid falling off my bike and keep the shutter clicking to captured his take-off. Later this week I'll post photos (with all-new adventures) of part 2, the trip on May 24.
