A Ride in the Rain

Howard to Wessington Springs

Looks pretty wet out there! We better wait a while!

The rain let up around 10ish so we headed out. We got 25 miles in and then it started to thunder so we ducked into a gas station. 

Tammy came in and asked us what we were doing. She and Gary are heading for Sturgis on their motorcycle so they stopped to wait for the thunder and lightening to pass too.

Tammy went out and got another rider who is carrying three bikes in a trailer. She took this shot of the four of us.

Once the thunder stopped the sky actually cleared and off we rode to Woonsocket. There we saw this pretty lake!

We thought we might sit on this bench and have some lunch.

They tried the melon but decided they liked grass better.

Once the rain stopped we could get a few shots of our surroundings. Lots of hay baling going on. One field was cut but not baled. What happens to it?

Steve Miller/GrampiesEither the farmer will wait for some hot sunny days and turn the hay until it dries and then bale it, or more likely will turn the damp stuff into silage.

Janet Anspach-RickeyTo Steve Miller/GrampiesThat makes sense! Couldn't imagine the whole field just wasted!
