Oh Spring - Where Art Thou?????

I might have mentioned a time or two (or six or seven) that I'm impatient for the season to change here. We seem 'stuck' in that miserable spot where there isn't enough 'good' snow to run dogs, but too much to do much of anything else. *sigh*

This morning while we were feeding dogs it seemed that there was a pretty good crust on the snow and I thought that maybe if stuck to what's left of our main trails I could take my Karate Monkey out for a spin.

Bet thought it was a great idea...

I pedaled up the driveway to where our dog trail crosses and there was no way I was biking on that. That's okay, I figured I'd just go to the really, really well used trails.

This is how far I got before ending up in a heap....

Yes, that is my knee (I wasn't kidding when I said 'heap') and yes, that is the edge of the dog yard.
*sigh* Well, at least I (narrowly) avoided landing in the pile of  'dog do' that Cricket left in the middle of the trail to tell the coyotes to stay away.

Plan B (which much to her dismay, didn't involve Bet).

Still pretty chilly on fast downhills and my ears were about blue by the time I turned around, but ya make do with what ya got!!! =)

Oh spring where art thou?????

From the looks of the weather coming at you this week, maybe another couple of weeks.

Spring seems to have deserted all of us this year. I know I can't help you find it, if I could, I'd try to pin it down and hold it here for a while.
