It was very hot in June, but since the early season fires and that lame stuff, the summer has been pretty nice. Nights have been cool as of late with nice mornings. I am enjoying my bike commute these days. It just seems to take less effort with the temps. Mountain biking has been a blast too.

For those of you who haven't checked it out, Stauton State park is pretty amazing. Went mountain biking there last Sunday and the scenery is just outstanding. The trails are easy to ride, but steep in spots. About 16 miles in all, so easy enough to do it all in one day. The looks nice and the rock climbing looks to be pretty good too. Same type of rock as you find at Devil's Head. Super featured, lots of chicken heads, incuts, and that sort of thing. The Elk Falls Overlook is not to be missed.

Park just opened in May, so it hasn't quite caught on yet. Not many hikers and even less people or bikes or horseback. Quite a change from the other spots around.
