Yesterday was such a beautiful spring day, and it was one of those days where I had so much I wanted to accomplish that I became a bit overwhelmed and decided to go for a bike ride instead. Therapy. And you've probably figured out by now that I really love to explore my own city. All of these photos were taken at Buffalo's Outer Harbor and Times Beach Nature Preserve. What is really interesting is that this "wilderness" is located within the city limits and is only a 30 minute ride from my house. It is separated from the city by the Buffalo River which makes it seem sort of distant. But if you look at the one photo (fourth from the bottom) you can see how close it is too downtown (for those not from the area, that is City Hall pictured beyond the trees).
