Huron Valley Trail

I went by this glass display again


Allie at our Novi restaurant. Novi got its name from being train stop No. VI

The road I took to get to the trail. At one point I could put my feet in 3 different counties.
I meant to be on the road by 6:30 but I just couldn't wake myself up. East winds again and rain in the forecast (which never came) so I was going to do a repeat of last week's route with a few extra miles thrown in to make it 30, which will be the shortest day of our ride in a few weeks. It was cloudy this time so I didn't have to squint going into the sun. The Huron River Valley Trail runs from somewhere west of South Lyon, through South Lyon to New Hudson through a bit of Milford and then on to Wixom. At around mile 19, I could turn off to Josh's but I took it to its end in Wixom doubling back to get 25 miles in. We were going to Josh's later that day anyway; I just came a bit early. I ended up more tired from my ride this week despite it being shorter but perhaps it was because I went against the wind for a good bit of time.

Julie is gone for the next 5 days or so. Josh needs a bit of help with Allie. She is standing and crawling now, so cute. Once Steve arrived, we took a walk to the park so she could go on the swings, then lunch out. I am so blessed to have my grandchildren so close. Maya was waiting for us when we returned home (by car this time for me).

The heartbreak of soccer or it isn't over until it's over.

Love the glass, Allie and that trail. And am still in awe at the distances you ride.
