Adding a little color to our bike rides

Lots of bicyclists hit the roads this weekend to enjoy the fall colors after a week-long deluge in the Pacific Northwest.

Last week I headed out to Preston in search of fall foliage along the Preston-Snoqualmie Trail. This weekend I found the big leaf maples turning a brilliant yellow just a couple of miles from home.

With temperatures in the 50s and dry — but overcast — skies, it was a good morning to share a ride with your favorite person (above) or head out and enjoy the outdoors on your own (below).

On the way home, I  caught sight of this coyote as I crossed the tracks on the abandoned BNSF right-of-way.

The Eastside Rail Corridor Regional Advisory Council is exploring ways to put this right-of-way to use for utilities, mass transit, and/or a bike trail. In the meantime, this coyote is using it to visit his favorite hunting grounds.

    Now that is an advantage of a bike ride, apart from the social ones, you can find other type of animals too. A coyote in this case.
