Aug 31, Wolfe Point, MT., Wind ShadowsPosted: August 31, 2011
Rode 53 mi today, straight north with a strong east wind. So Bill and I spent most of the day in the wind shadow of each other…big help. A bit flatter land, a bit greener. Saw our first field of CORN-suspect we may see a bit more in days ahead. For the first ten miles
or so today the edge of the road was covered with black crickets…hey, give me a break here…when you’re staring mostly at the road all day you notice these things. Later it was all grasshoppers again. In fact three hoppers made it into the motel with our bike gear-they’re now swimming in the mighty Mo. We’re on the Fort Peck Indian Reservation now and will be thru tomorrow. Pic is by Bill of an old abandoned school. While he was taking the pic a cowboy in a pickup stopped and asked if he’d seen a loose bull or two heiffers along the road. We hadn’t.
