Hills, there's a lot of hills here-a-bouts. Short hills with some steep sections. One, which I went down with the brakes carefully applied, hit a 19% grade according to the GPS. More than one or two I pushed the bike up....

It is fall here and the trees are changing. Muted colors this year, warm and dry. Great bicycling weather though. Lots of real farms, cows and corn. Miles and miles of winding country roads, many with very few cars.

Pratt's Falls is a nice little county park with lots of picnic spots and wooded views of a small waterfall. A hot air balloon inflated and took off while I chilled after the 20 mile roller-coaster ride.

Kellish Hill Farm is a wonderful music venue owned and run by Kathy Kellish. She's harnessed the power of many friends all oriented toward a happy, healthy place to enjoy home spun music. They have open mic nights on Tuesday and Thursday and an old-timey type jam on Sundays. A wonderful sound system and lighting with lots of musician comradery. It's 'Where the Music Lives", year round.

Shows the reinforcements I added to the pannier rack to hold the weight of the full Arkel's. The Arkel's themself are bombproof.
