Although I had a great visit at Sandhill, it felt really good to hit the road again today.
The only unusual thing that happened today was that a dog befriended me and followed me for about 7 miles. I finally enlisted the help of another dog owner to keep him in one place while I rode away. I enjoyed having the company for those miles, but I was afraid he wouldn't be able to find his way home, and he was getting very hot and thirsty.
I picked up the Great River Road at Canton and followed it through LaGrange to Wakonda State Park.
total distance: 51.84 mi
