Today was a beautiful day! No wind or very little wind and whatever there was, it was at Cal’s back. The temperature was perfect. In fact this morning it was a chilly 55 degrees – slightly chilly.

Whenever there is a river, the road descends to the creek or river. However whenever there is a downhill, there is a guaranteed uphill! Today we crossed numerous creeks/rivers flowing toward the Mississippi, thus it was a hilly ride.
As to wildlife today - I saw two deer in very different locations, I saw and identified a Phoebe bird that looks kind-a-like a Eastern Kingbird, but it is smaller and does not have a white tipped tail. I saw numerous Indigo Buntings too. Cal saw numerous Goldfinch’s but I did not see any of them.
