Most of the ride was in and out of the shade

At about 10 km, I noticed some suspicious poles sticking up and went to take a closer look. A dry kayak course. The power plant will release water on kayak days

Facilities were a bit more frequent heading east from mile 48 than they had been going west. About every 5 km there was a campsite with an outhouse.

and water - though it took 10-12 quick pumps to get the water up.

I've been from about mile 35 to mile 65 and this was the only place right on the route to stock up on supplies.

They've had to start over a few times.

I think I showed locks for the west side, but this one was particularly interesting

And of course, some wild life. The usual suspects hanging out at the store

The others who work for their dinner

And the lazy mugs

Mrs. had a deer run across the trail about a bike length in front of her - no picture though.
