Day 2 the start of the plains 8-2-16

We left Red Wing at 8:30 and took State Road 19 West through some beautiful wooded hills with all the valley’s being farmed, a scenic ride. We worked our way North after crossing the Minnesota River to US 212 and took that West through much flatter land.  The trucks hauling 40 yard loads of sweet corn to the cannery were everywhere.

The day started out cloudy and soon changed to sunny and HOT.  It was 91 deg. When we stopped at Bobs Resort overlooking the Missouri river on US212. 20160802_191056
