Beautiful day today. We started along the Mississippi or (Lake Pepin) up to Red Wing and then headed to the Cannon Valley Trail.

Nancy WrightI loved the Cannon Valley Trail! We went through on a Sunday morning. One guy in the group stayed back in town to go to church. By the time he came down the trail a few hours later, he was riding through water on the trail that was 1-2 feet deep from flooding!

Janet Anspach-RickeyTo Nancy WrightWe had to walk over 2 places where the water had left dirt on the trail after that big storm yesterday. Soon after we crossed the area two fellows in a truck with shovels in the back came up the trail to clear off the mess.
