Why South? It seems lately I've been going mostly West and North. Other than going South, the closest thing to a goal I had was to take Morganford/Union to its end, which believe me, is a rather modest undertaking. But, then I wondered what the corn looked like. I know we need rain. I wondered how bad it was. I wanted to see it with my own eyes.
|The corn looks quite stressed. We are very dry here.|
Well, one thing led to another and before long I found myself headed for the Covered Bridge that sets in a park at the end of Old Lemay Ferry Road.
|The bridge is closed to traffic, but I know a number of people who have posed their rides in front of the bridge, and some even on the other side.|
|I'm afraid I am terribly rule bound. This was as close as Billie got to the bridge.|
When all was said and done, my little ride turned into a three hours plus and 77mi/124km jaunt in the country. By the way the temperature didn't reach 100F, but did make it up to 98F/37C.
