A Redtailed Hawk circling overhead. It was one of a pair, but I couldn't get both in my viewfinder at the same time before they disappeared onto the other side of the ridgeline.
Today's ride: 26 miles, never left the City of Palm Springs. This photo is looking down into Palm Canyon from the Trading Post at the end of the road at Hermit's Bench.

Today's ride: 35 miles. Hill climb with great vistas and the pungent aroma of rotting garbage to the county dump, approximately 500 feet elevation gain over the 1.7 miles up Edom Hill, then out to the Indian Canyons. Seems like there were headwinds in every direction that I rode. My bike went into a speedwobble on the downhill from the dump, scared the heck out of me.
