Can CanCan

Rode out to Santee and back, pretty much the usual route, except I didn't go by the dam, electing to climb the Mission Gorge Road hill, and didn't go around the lake.

I took a bunch of pictures along Forester Creek. The new (finally!) 52 extension will go along here. Here's the big embankment near Prospect.

I used the gamma correction to lighten this one up. It's take from the Olive Lane bridge, as is the preceding one.

A bit farther along the bike path, but still on Prospect, I took this pic, looking to the east-ish. Too much sun, I guess so it came out dark.

I gamma corrected it here. I don't have a clue what gamma is, but it work like magic!

2008May25BikeRide 007GAM

But before I gamma corrected it, I hit the wrong button and negatived it. But it looks interesting, don't it?

Closer to Mission Gorge Road, and looking south, we see more embankments.

A temporary bridge over Forester Creek using an old railroad flat car. I rode over it. Don't tell anyone!

The road to Tucker's place, where Kelly and I split a lot of wood, and helped Tucker dynamite that rock up there.

Over on Fletcher Parkway, I went down that embankment to retrieve that can, and what did I find?

2008May25BikeRide 015One Can

2008May25BikeRide 016Two Cans

2008May25BikeRide 018Three cans!

This picture, while overly large, shows four things:
  • The clippers (a found item, BTW) used to trim errant branches along bike paths.
  • A rock I picked up today. Someday, a rock garden!
  • A wrench (7/16 inch) I found today on Mission Gorge Road. Mastergrip brand. Costco?
  • An oddly familiar piece of metal, which the scale shows is almost 24 HO scale feet long!
