Hitting the trails

We were able to mountain bike today for the second time this year. The rains of the previous months have softened the canyon's appearance. Trails that were rutted are now smooth, places that were hard-packed are now sandy, the sandy places have acquired greenery. The very edges of the trails are obscured by the verdant growth. The water has brought other changes, as well. Whole sections of the trail have sunk, not to mention the muddy expanses that haven't quite dried yet.

I suppose this happens every year, the renewal of the trail. It is fascinating to watch the changes take place.
