New Years Day Meander

Many of us are fortunate to live in places where we are able to ride almost year around.  South Carolina, where I live, is one such place.

We have had lots of rain over the past two months, so I have not been out riding much.  But today -- New Years Day, 2016 -- I was able to go out for a few hours.  The temperature was in the high 50s, so it was a pleasant ride.

How about you?  Did you get out on New Years Day?  What sights did you see?
