Have I got spirit???
Day two begins with a planned trip of the Prairie Spirit rail trail heading south out of Ottawa. The plan is to meet my cycling buddy Richard on the trail after he starts out in Iola, our destination for tonight.
It is a nicer day than yesterday started without the rain.
Rolled up into the first little town and stopped to pay my trail fee for two days, $3.50 per day. I know some that object to a trail fee, but really, $3.50 for a day of fun??? Have you bought a ski lift ticket or played 18 holes of golf lately???
This trail has a bit more of a finished feel to it than yesterday's ride. Firmer surface and the little towns along the way spaced out about every ten miles or so. A bit more open views of the surrounding farmland. I just love the golden contrast of the wheat fields after the tree canopy's and the green corn fields.
Garnett is safe from invasion!!
A pretty fishing hole.
Early start the next morning for our ride back to breakfast in Colony. First time in a while that I have watched the sunrise from a bike seat. Even Richard was corrupted by my no helmet craziness!!
Riding up out of Colony
More to come!!
