Springtime on Butler Valley

I got off work early and hit the road before noon. I did the Butler Valley loop (46 miles) in 3 hours and 15 minutes. It was perfect.

Even in the snow capped hills the temperatures stayed around 60 F. The unusual S/SE wind brought a warm breeze that smelled a little like summer.

Cherry trees are blossoming and daffodils are popping up. The presence of flying insects made today feel distinctly spring-like.
