More bike ride minutiae

Took the Prius to the dealer for something they said it needed.
All on the guarantee.
Rode from North Auburn to Flaming Geyser Park and back.
Nice curvy road, (flat road, only one bridge to gear down for), little flocks of goldfinches, some cows, shorn sheep, horses whinnying, and a barking dog.
Numerous country odors, cows (again), and skunks.
Gave 'em two hours to fix the water pump that I didn't know was leaking.
They had it ready when I got back to the shop.
Nice work Doxon Toyota.

27.07 miles
11.5 mph average speed (flat road)
21.1 mph maximum speed
2:21:42 hours on the road.
2281.11 odometer.
Then, all of a sudden, it was now.

Just a touch, a few sprinkles, of the great Pacific Northwest's version of sunshine.

Hallo, Lane!!
Thanks, finally, for a bike-ride report that tells something about the scenery you experienced along the way!!!! Very interesting, including the circumstantial evidence of the presence of polecats!!

Haven't dropped in for a week.
How time flies when retired.
Nice prose description of the
ride, for sure. Was the water
pump a recall?

I'm not sure about the WP they said I said it was leaking but I didn't see any leak but WTH it's on the warranty.
