How can you tell that you're the first one to ride on the trail during the end of August, first of September?
Spider webs. I know it's not a great shot, but it was a quick one with the camera phone... I rode through so many spider webs strung across the path that I felt like I must have looked like that guy in Raiders of the Lost Ark...
I've just got to remember not to step out into that beam of light.
