Neuse River Trail: Sunflowers

Amazingly cool and comfortable mid-July morning for a bike ride!  We decided to drive out to a trailhead parking lot that's close to the Sunflower fields - we'd never seen them before.  We still can't get over how nice the Neuse River Trail is...what a gift to the people of Wake County.

We saw a few deer and a small group of Indigo Buntings.  This section was much more popular with cyclists than walkers/runners. After taking photos of the sunflowers, I realized I hadn't gotten a photo of the "trail" itself.  So this quick one will have to do.
