The Flint Hills Nature Trail runs east and west across Eastern Kansas.
We chose Ottawa for a base for the first two days. This morning I rode east out of Ottawa – only a few miles but the scenery was really really nice and I rode in perfect solitude – as in I had the Trail to myself.
A peaceful meandering stream cutting
through the flint.
This photo does not do this scene justice at all.
The log was bleached absolutely white – it was gorgeous.
A beautiful and peaceful place to be.
Tomorrow morning the local bike shop shuttle
will pick us up at our hotel and drive us
35 miles west to Osage City and we will
ride back into Ottawa.
