My wife and I are 1,200+ miles into a self-supported bicycle tour. One highlight yesterday was seeing and photographing my first ever Eastern Meadowlark. These beautiful birds do not live in the cold climate of northern Minnesota (our home). As we continued to bicycle our way north through southern Missouri we actually saw hundreds of meadowlarks! Perhaps we had caught up with their spring migration? Many of the trees along the roadside are now just beginning to bud out … this the name for this tour, the Spring North Tour.
