Winter Ride Through Sword Ferns

Yesterday was a perfect day for single track riding through a wet and muddy forest of Red Cedars and Douglas Firs, its understory filled with Sword Ferns, winter mushrooms and little patches of snow. Bicycling is a bit too fast sometimes to notice everything I want to see. I had to stop to watch a Hairy Woodpecker drill and acrobatically climb a fir tree. My clothes were splattered in so much mud I hosed them off before placing them in the washing machine.
