Finally it’s warm enough and light enough for an early morning bike ride.
In only a few minutes I am out of town and on a farm road where the only traffic…
…is a school bus and an occasional pickup truck.
Farmers are getting their equipment ready.
Soon they will be planting the thousands of acres of rich volcanic farm land.
The ridge in the background is the rim of one of many extinct volcanoes in the area.
If the weather cooperates this view will soon be fields green with potatoes and grain crops.
Now if I can just get back to town before the five minute rush hour hits.
