Sept. 7, Pierre, SD, Metal Pony RestsPosted: September 7, 2011
Arrived in Pierre at 1:30 and me and the pony are tired – 55 mi today. By the way, it’s pronounced ‘peer’, not that frenchy way. DQ choco shake is perking me up, pony got air in the tires and will get a chain cleaning later. Today’s route took us away from the river, so not very scenic. Did see quite a few pheasants (pheasant hunting’s big here) and lots of big ole’ red tailed hawks. I’ll include a pic of Lake Oahe taken from the steakhouse window last night. The dam which causes Lake Oahe is here in Pierre so that gives some idea of the size..the lake goes far north of where I set eating records last night. Tomorrow’s route starts to hook east again with the Mighty Mo. River. I’ll be doing sun salutes in the AM with the pony.
