Yellow River Park--some mountain biking and a jog

We got up early on Saturday so I could run the Virginia Highlands Christmas 5K. Although it was chilly, mid-forties, it wasn't raining and that is a bonus around here :)

We decided to follow it up with some mountain biking for Tavo and a hike for me. Here is Tavo on his new bike.

The sun is trying to peak though...
Off he goes! You can see that we were about the only people at the park.
It was too chilly to just hike, so I jogged the trails. Yellow River really flooded--I turned around when the trail looked like this--but Tavo just went right through it!
More river shots--its a really beautiful park. I loved having it to ourselves.
This sign was pretty funny--there were about 4 of them along the trail...

Here's a very muddy Tavo--back from his ride!
and we followed it up with a hot bowl of soup and grilled cheese...which I forgot to take pictures of. All of you have seen soup and grilled cheese before, though.

Happy Holidays!

I love that sign: "Annoying Noises prohibited." I need one of those for my house sometimes!
