up to the country

No bears like you might see in the north woods, but I get to see some livestock on my rides in the country.
These guys were better subjects:
 One of the benefits of riding in the relatively flat, wide-open spaces of the midwest is the ability to see a water tower from several miles away. It's hard to see in this picture, but it's a little to the right of the red barn.
When you're hoping for the next town for a rest stop, you see this and even though you may be several minutes away, the light is at the end of the tunnel.
I didn't take a picture of the cattle, but I liked their sign. Three weeks from today my lovely wife is driving me across Kansas for the start of BAK. Then she will take her time getting back, and look for a gold mine of antiques and collectibles along the way. Today was cool for mid-May in KS, but still good for about 35 miles.


  1. Ah, it's good to be in the country, eh? A nice long ride to clear the head. Thanks for adding Harvest Moon to your play list. It's a classic.

    Good Luck during your BAK preparations. I'm planning to do the RAIN (Ride Across Indiana), but that takes only 1 day. A nice long tour like BAK will be great.
