Lions & Tigers &

OK, I may not have seen lions & tigers and bears on my ride today but I did see a large amount of wildlife. I left Vermillion about 1:00 p.m. and headed out to the SD/NE bridge. On the way to the bridge I saw 10 deer, 2 hawks, 1 bald eagle and the largest flock of wild turkeys I have ever seen. There had to be some where between 30 to 40 turkeys in this group. The sky was also black at times with geese, I mean there were so many geese flying I'm surprised I didn't get a splat from above. After I made my way back from the bridge to Vermillion I spent about 40 minutes riding around Vermillion, the streets were dry and it was nice to hide in town from the cool NW wind. All in all a nice ride.
