Saturday started out with a peaceful trot through Cave Point County Park off of Lake Michigan and then a trek across the county back to the Alpine Resort in Egg Harbor. The cross-county roads were flat and open to stiff winds and the occasional random raincloud, but aside from that it was a pretty pleasurable day!
Sun on the horizon… a far superior morning!
