Sep 11, Sloan, IA, IOWA!!!Posted: September 12, 2011
Left Yankton just a bit before sunrise doing 102 mi into Sloan. Wouldn’t have been quite so much, but the bike trail along the river in Sioux City was really messed up by this year’s floods. That put me off the mapped routing and into the city. Let’s say I saw more of Sioux
City than I should have/wanted to. Pretty much standard farmland riding today….corn and beans. Stumbled onto a DQ when I needed it most – what a country. It was so pretty as the sun was coming up that I tried for a shot of it burning off the fog…maybe too artsy for this format…shortly before this pic it really did look like a ‘red rubber ball’. Second pic made me laugh and stop. If you look close it says “HAY CAPITAL OF THE UNIVERSE”. Who knew? Also, the “next five exits” were turnoffs from the road and were within the next 200 yards. Pretty good South Dakota humor.
