One More Ride...

We have arrived in Maryland! Does anyone else think it's weird that it is pronounced "Mare-land" instead of "Merry-land"? (Don't worry, I didn't just figure this out. Just reflecting.) Before I completely left New Mexico behind, I wanted to take some pictures along my regular bike route, having been reminded by my sister that my bike route will now look very different. I'm thinking I won't be racing too many tumbleweeds 'round these parts.

After I leave the neighborhood, I rode down this street over the railroad tracks. There are usually cattle in the field to the left.

Next, I stop and visit some goats. I love their floppy ears!

This is the first time I saw this horse. Apparently it's perfectly normal to park your horse in your front yard in New Mexico.

Next, I rode past the train yard. The train blocking the road is a frequent occurrence.

I love these bare trees.

Finally, turn around at (yet another) train crossing.

That looks like a ride you're going to miss! I hope you find a new fascinating route to ride soon!

Welcome to Maryland! (or should I say Meriland ... since that's how we all pronounce it over here ...)

That does look like a ride that you'd miss - but I'm sure your new place won't be short on amusement for you. I've spent the past week in Alexandria and it has been wonderful!

Oh my, I have to admit that I am terribly embarassed... I haven't been keeping up on my bloglines at all, and I had no idea that you were moving. Even more so that you were moving to MY state! (how funny that we both move from SE NM to MD!) I live in between Baltimore and DC, but I work in Montgomery Co., right next to the DC line. I would *love* to get together, Sarah. Drop me a line when you get the chance :)
