U turns

This was basically a driving exploration day to follow up on some suggestions we had been given. Once on the gravel/dirt/dusty road, we guesstimated it would be at least 30 long and miserable miles to the isolated fishing place that our fly fisher friend had told Susan about. We made our first U turn, but got a couple of photos in the hazy sky.


We were surprised to see so many turbines out in the fields.

We drove on for our next attempt for a visit to the hamlet of Lonerock that the motel owner had told us about to see, well the rock behind the church! The looooooong and winding road was not to Susan's liking for driving, but we continued on until the pavement turned to that gravel/dirt/dust thing again. Did we really need to see a rock behind a church? We made our second U turn.


We drove back toward "our town" of Fossil with a little excursion to visit the fossil bed close to town. Part way up the hill, with eighteen more miles to go, we read the brochure that told us it was not open to the public and we could view the beds from afar. We had done that at the other Fossil beds. We made our third U turn.

Susan dropped me off at the top of a hill (after driving down the more scary hairpin turns) and I enjoyed a delightful coast into town with a few more views on the way.


Back in town we did some chores by bike - a drive by view of the Court House where festivities will take place for the Bluegrass Festival (Vickie, eat your heart out)...
... and a stop at the everything store for supplies... Hard to figure out why people drive their car around town for errands as it is such a tiny area that walking or biking gets you there too soon!


It was fairly difficult to get many miles on my bike in this small town so I did a few leisurely laps in and around all the nooks and crannies and dead ends.

We have learned that Wheeler county (where we are) has three incorporated towns, and has more horses than people.
