To Alley Spring

Bathroom and breakfast at Lollipop Diner (in that order; the courthouse wasn't open yet), then it was time for me to get on the road before it got any hotter. Riding in the Ozarks is described in the AC riding conditions section to be a "self-propelled roller coaster ride." Today I could only manage 20 miles in 2 1/2 hours. I met Dick in Bendavis - the store in the background is about all there is here.
It was so hot this afternoon, very muggy and very buggy. The horseflies were particularly awful.
A large park in the center of Summersville:
The Ozark National Scenic Riverways is the first national park to protect a wild river system.  There are two spring-fed rivers, Jack's Fork and Current.
Alley Mill:
Alley Spring with an average daily flow of 81 millions gallons:
Alley Spring Campground:
It was very hot, muggy and buggy this afternoon. The horseflies were particularly annoying.

Miles = 2431
