Yesterday clouds were converging from the East, West, and South upon Arcata. It was hard to tell which wind would prevail. It hailed pretty hard earlier so I decided to put off the ride and just cross-train instead.
Today I did the Butler Vally loop again. I was a bit under-dressed since winter weather has returned. There was snow down to about 2,500 ft.
I saw a handful of deer and a herd of about 30 Roosevelt Elk. I slowed to take a picture, but the slower I went the faster they left.
46 miles in 3 hours and 10 minutes, top speed 44 mph.
