56 Mile Bicycle Ride – Camden to Hertford, NC and Back

And so I put on my Under Armor bicycle clothing (for the cold), my blaze orange vest (so I would be seen by the hunters), had 2 bottles filled with Gatorade and was off on a bicycle ride. I rode from Camden into Elizabeth City, along the beautiful Pasquotank River. I made my way down city streets, and then out of town on 2 lane roads that quickly went from a suburban setting to a rural, agricultural setting. On my trek, I rode through Pasquotank and Perquimans counties to the town of Hertford. I’m going to share photos with you of some of the sights I enjoyed along the ride.

Here are some photos of the horses I saw:

And there was cotton harvesting equipment that had been busy this last week:

I also found a committee of vultures meeting in a field, and performing formation flying…

And there were some ponies grazing in a field..

I also caught an elusive and timid gray heron with my telephoto lense.

And there were LOTS of soybeans in the fields, most of which were ready to be picked (like these).
