I've been totally unmovtivated to ride all week, so had to get in good one today. I woke up with a headache which lasted well into the morning. Detour in back to Adair to get coffee took me though some of the closed off roads in E.E. Wilson wildlife refuge. Then on to the Buena Vista ferry, through the Ankeny wildlife refuge and up past the Ankeny winery. Saw Ramon in Independence who was handing out surverys for the city. Had a sandwich at the Ovenbird and headed home through Monmouth, Helmick Road, and 99W.

Nice cool day with a little wind. Cloudy to start but then mostly sunny.
