Aug 29, Jordan, MT. “I Looked Over Jordan”

And what did I see? If Montanans were totally honest they’d agree that the state bird, flower, tree all rolled together should be the grasshopper. They’re everywhere- as we ride along they’re flying up constantly- into the spokes (ping) onto my bare leg (whoa Nellie) two rode on the handlebars and bags with me for miles this morning. Even seeing a new species today – black sitting, brilliant red inner wings when flying. The BnB last night was just like home – good food and sleep. Windy ride today, stiff crosswind, open grassland, long views, antelopes, came upon a wounded nighthawk-happy coyote tonite. Raining as we arrived in Jordan, nice motel. Pics are front of BnB w/bikes and neat eroded gray landscape near BnB-result of area being inland sea very long time ago.

    WOWIE!!! What fantastic and beautiful sights you are seeing … “Oh beautiful, for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain… America, America, God shed His grace on thee..”

    When the wind isn’t blowing and assuming you are on relatively flat ground, what is your ground speed?

    I’m not thinking Montanna will be willing to trade “Big Sky Country” for “Land of many grasshoppers”, you might drop it in the suggestion box though,
