Aug 29, Jordan, MT. “I Looked Over Jordan”Posted: August 29, 2011
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.
