Just a regular day of cycling – hot, relatively little elevation and just plain steady.
We didn’t feel as perky as we did yesterday but we made it to our destination in Kosciusko and we were still smiling at the end of the day. 😊
Right now we are camping on the back deck of the Kosciusko visitor center and it over looks the Trace. There are lightning bugs, (two ceiling fans yay), flushers and outlets. An Italian restaurant and gas station are located nearby. Everything a bike traveller could want.
It seemed extra hot today with the temps in the mid 90’s and I’m sure the heat index higher.
Loved the cycleway that bypassed Jackson, the huge reservoir we cycled next to for many miles and the Cypress Swamp. We finally met some northbounders today too!
The GNAT meter registered LOW today (praise God for that)! And the only critter we saw was a box turtle.
We were glad to be done and looking forward to tomorrow’s ride to Witch Dance.
