Early Fall Day
This August 22nd has been the perfect early fall day: comfortably cool and crisp, partly cloudy but with lots of sun. Some foliage beginning to turn color. Blackberry pickers along the Chehalis Western Trail in force. Stiff breeze from the west. The forecast called for showers early today but they never came. A perfect day to ride.
So was yesterday. I rode both days. Today was a 16 mile loop north on the CWT and back through northeast Olympia and its exurbs. Yesterday I rode a 19 mile loop over to The Evergreen State College and back via southeast Olympia.
Today is the kind of weather that lures people to this area. Many are shocked to find the climate gray, wet and somewhat cooler during other times of the year.
