Cirrus clouds look like wispy horse tails because they’re mostly made out of ice crystals.
Ice crystals also lend cirrostratus clouds an ethereal appearance, which is why sunlight refracts into a halo when it shine through a sheet of these high-up-in the atmosphere formations.
Cirrostratus clouds accumulating on top of cirrus clouds late in the afternoon signals that warm weather is on its way!
Today’s touring wended a leisurely 76 miles along the shores of Lake Michigan.
I also availed myself of the fabulous facilities in the Escanaba Public Library in order to make some last minute edits on a press release.
The riding today was simply splendid: flat, easy-going, minimal traffic, and plenty of glimpses of Lake Michigan along the way to keep things interesting.
Before I knew it, my final destination for the day was right in front of me!
Although this campground is perfectly delightful, the 3G wireless coverage is somewhat spotty, so I think it’s time for THIS vagabond-on-a-velocipede to say sayonara and good night! Stay tuned for tales of tomorrow’s peninsular pedaling, and STAY POSITIVE!
