Today marks the first day of my ride home. I've decided to take it easier and to rest more, so I was in my motel room by 4:30 tonight. I'm in Dodge City, KS, a ride of something like 350 miles. It got hot, so I stopped!
There wasn't anything special about today's ride. I left Kevin's home and headed south to Pueblo CO. There, I took US 50 east to Dodge City. Once I started east, the Rockies were shortly out of sight, now riding on flat plains lands of eastern CO and southern KS. So much wheat and corn, some of it looking healthy, and some completely burned up from the heat and drought Farmers are having a horrible lyear in so many places. We'll pay for all of this later.
Had dinner at the Dodge House Restaurant. It was very good; chicken fried steak, baked potato, baked beans and a salad. All of it was good! I'd recommend the place.
Today's heat was in the low 100s from about noon until I stopped at the motel. It probably heated up just a bit after I got inside since it was earlier than usual.
I'm going to post some pics taken along the trip; none were from today, but I wanted to share some of the beauty and this is a good day to do it since I don't have a lot to say.
Tomorrow, ride to Ozark MO and dinner at Lambert's (home of the Throwed Rolls)..
