It has been more that 2 weeks since our Christmas eve blizzard and we still have snow on the ground. That is very unusual for eastern Oklahoma. It has been above freezing here today and sunny which will melt it soon. People are back running and biking on the Riverpark along the Arkansas. There were some diehards who never stopped even when it was 8*F (-13*C).
In the event that you would like to ride a bicycle down the trail but do not have one with you, you can rent one. Step up to the bike rack in the 41st Street rest area, insert your credit card in the slot and a bicycle is released from the rack. I have seen baggage carts available in airports which are dispensed this way. I suppose that some dishonest person might just keep the bike, but the bright pink paint makes these rather distinctive.
By the way, the brown fixture in the left foreground is a water fountain designed to serve both man and dog.
