Minnesota Driving 2011, Day 14

09 Aug

Monday, Trip Home, 400 miles two lane

We were up at 0530 and left at 0550 and hit our first and only detour at Clara City on HI way 23.  We went through Sacred Heart and then on to the North Platte, Nebraska.  It was about 550 miles with 400 of them on two lane roads. 

Our complete day was surrounded by motorcycles.  The Sturgis Rally is on and the bikes were coming in from every directions.  Quite a sight.

We had our main meal at Valentine, Nebraska and especially enjoyed our ride through the Sand Hills of Nebraska.  We never would have believed how green they are.  

We ended up in North Platte, NB at 1730.  I just got back from a two mile walk to get some fresh fruit for our light dinner meal.  Hope to sleep good tonight and then another early start tomorrow.  We are climbing and should be through the high plains of Wyoming…7000 ft.…tomorrow.
