So Long KATY

We’re finished!  And, to be honest, we’re both kinda glad.  It was a good trip, but good night!  It seemed like a good idea several weeks ago, but who knew the heat would be as bad as it was….

Thursday evening in Rocheport was very pleasant.  We walked the 1.5 miles from our “dorm room” at the School House B & B to the Les Bourgeois vineyard/winery for dinner and to watch the sunset.

They have a bistro on top of a bluff overlooking the Missouri River, and as far as I’m concerned, the sunset view is probably one of the best in the state.  We had dinner, then waited for the sun to sink before walking back to Rocheport.

Day4 013

On Friday, we got our earliest start of the week, hitting the trail at 6:00 am.  By hitting the trail so early, we enjoyed both the coolness of the dawn as well as an abundance of deer along the trail.  This was the first day we saw any up close.

We were looking forward to our last “station stop” at North Jefferson because we knew we would be a short 12 miles from the truck at that point.  We paused for a quick snack, refilled our water bottles and headed out across what we both agreed to be the most unpleasant leg of the trip because of the exposed trail on the edge of corn and bean fields.

We arrived back at the truck at exactly noon, and that was just in the nick-of-time since it was getting unpleasant out there again.  We quickly loaded the bikes and headed on to St. Louis for the weekend.

God bless…
