I-94 on one side of the Lake Wobegon Trail and I'm glad to be where I'm at.
Just before Albany, one branch of the trail makes an abrupt 90-degree turn to the north. Now, the scenery was even more beautiful. An abundance of blooming yarrow.
I give this spot the Best Bench of the Trail Award.
I waited for Dick to catch up at the city park. This climbing structure was built by local service groups to commemorate the 100-year anniversary of the railroad coming to town.
We rode the last 7 miles to Bowlus together. Jordie's Cafe is just off the trail.
Tonight we're staying with Jan and Jen, Warmshowers hosts. Last year Jan rode his fur-covered (even the pedals and kick stand) Suicide Bull bicycle in the annual 4th of July Bowlus parade. Suicide? Yes, the bike has no brakes.
