Now that the weather is turning nice, I've got my bike out and I'm riding up Provo Canyon again. Very pleasant, other than the bugs. No, there's no black widows running across the trail (but my roommate Kirk did catch a Tarantula on the trail a couple years ago), but there's swarms of little flies. As I go through them, it feels like it's raining flies on me.

On Sunday my apartment decided to go geocaching up Provo Canyon. One of the points we ended up at an old ruined fort. It was used by the Mormons to watch for U.S. troops that might come through Provo Canyon. I had no idea it was there. It's across from Bridal Veil Falls, on the top of a hill. You can't really see it from the road - If you're looking, you can see a little red flag that marks the area, but you can't see the fort.

I'm still somewhat looking for a different job, but I'm kind of holding off to see what might become available with a development job with my old manager. I think that would be best.

Hey...the blog ate my comment! >:-( I never knew there was a fort up the canyon. Ya learn something new every day. I guess you probably have learned to ride your bike with your mouth closed eh? Old manager = Ralph?

Yup. Ralph. I do want that job, even though I heard Novell is going to close all req's in the somewhat near future, for an unspecified amount of time.
