Rode easy this day and took a lot of pictures.  Visited the Park's Sims Store, a re-creation of a 19th century general store.  We went inside the Syracuse Zoo for dinner and while we were in there, there was a sudden thunderstorm.  When we came out there was a beautiful rainbow.  Unfortunately I didn't get any good pictures of it.
