Dismembered dog or coyote on the road about a mile into my ride -- hard to tell them apart after repeated impacts and some age.
Phlox blooming in a patch I see every spring. Also probable yarrow. Honeysuckle has gone berserk.
Got out on the bike, upstream to my normal break at a dam and overlook, and did not like the look over -- clouds definitely leaking out there. Headed back down our side of the river rather than crossing and adding another four miles to the route.
