Wauponsee Glacial Ride
We changed things up today, racked up the bikes, and rode instead of walked. We headed back to Symerton, Illinois, but this time rode south on the Wauponsee Glacial Trail.
The crushed limestone trail is lined with bushes, wildflowers, and trees that provided shade when we needed it. We rode through primarily farmland, some planted with soy, but most of it planted with corn. I enjoyed seeing the golden rod and a pair of kingbirds (a new bird to add to the list!).
We’re not really accustomed to biking so far and were pretty tired by the time we were done.
Such a good ride!
