Morning Commute

Rode my bike down to the county assessor's office to renew the license plates on my car and snapped this pic of the morning commute on Front Street.  On the bike it took me 5 minutes.

Wet and Dry

The contrast of the well watered grass of Quarry View Park and the dry hillside.   The quarry that is viewed from here is on the side and top ridge of the hill.  Sandstone was quarried for the old penitentiary which is used as museum now and just on the other side of the trees in the back of the park.
