Today, the cold came back and we even had a bit of snow fall. Regardless of the crappy weather, I needed to escape so I took the fat bike out to see what the weather had done to the canal over by Annawan.
Yes, another fat bike pic:) I can't help myself!
After a couple of miles, I reached the aqueduct right outside of town. The creek was certainly up, and I would have loved to see what it looked like yesterday, but instead, the aftermath.
While there, I spotted a new bird species for myself. I captured both male and female yellow-rumped warblers. They were feeding below the aqueduct on the flotsam and jetsam that had accumulated there.

One final surprise awaited at the aqueduct. An otter had visited here just today, so I'm hopeful that I may soon get a good closeup of it.
I rode down a couple more bridges, but my ride was cut short by a flat on the way back:( This will be a new adventure. This will be the first time I've changed a flat with these monstrous tires.
