Early rising was the order of the morning on this trip......no slacking or goofing off on this vacation.
Breakfast this morning was a short ride back into Hermann and the fire house which was the venue for a great breakfast buffet set up for us.
Before we get rolling today I missed some pictures from the first day so I am going to throw them in here now.......because I can!
Barns...I like old barns and you will get some pictures of them
This really struck me.....one big tree left out there in the middle of the farm field. Reminded me a bit of the tree in the movie Forest Gump.
It was also the toughest day of riding for me. Not sure if the days of consecutive rides caught up with me or a sore achilles tendon that I twanged the first day back on Flint hills trail day was bugging me. I rode past another turtle that was different from the little box kind I had seen. It was a green flat looking one. Looked like a dinner plate. I did not stop but just kept pedaling. Then it hit me that I had stopped having fun and taking pictures and noticing the beautiful ride. I told Rob and Kelley that they should ride their ride because I was going to slow my pace down and ride mine.
Barn in the woods.
I came up on the famous rock that marks all the different floods that have occurred through the time that the RR has been through. Interesting the depth of the water marked.
