Biking along the Battle Road Trail

I tried out my new Sony point-and-shoot camera during a 10-mile bike ride, out and back, along the Battle Road Trail earlier today. I picked up the camera so I could document places I travel to over the next year for Ellen Clegg’s and my book project. The results were much better than I can get from a phone — especially inside shots. Overall, I was pretty happen with the results.

There are lots of these along the road. It was a tough day for the British.
