There is a truck in front of me as the road curves around to the left. There is a rock wall that goes around the road.

Laurie, I missed a day too on Sunday so I never noticed! :)

I left the big highway, on a dirt road now and in the shadow of a small clump of trees, the sun is still very low. Otherwise the landscape is still very bare, but at least green.

Missed a day, it's a holiday week and it was a travel day. My steps are going to be pathetic for the next week or so, but I'll still try to check in every day.

Going straight towards the last bit of pink in the sky. It's amazing how long it stays light, I think the sun has been down for the last 50 kilometers or so. The landscape it pretty indistinguishable now, though.

I must be going through a town, I see a church on the right, but not much else. There may be houses behind the trees on both sides of the street though, I can't tell for sure.

Houses and shade trees. The map says more than 12 miles to the next town, but I wonder if there is something on either side.

Hello Brenda, nice to see you again! We feared you had deserted us. emoticon

I passed through a town (probably Girard) yesterday, but forgot to post.
Now I'm going through a long left curve, in the middle of lots of green fields again.

Was out of town for 2 weeks, so I added up all my miles to the end of October, 49.5.

Going around the bend on a dual lane road. Field on the left enclosed by a fence, with scattered trees. On the right are craggy rocks with over grown bushes and weeds. As usual, it is a beautiful bright sunny day!

It is, Laurie! Very flat and I'm starting to wonder if this road will ever take a turn.
Still going straight ahead, but it looks as if I'm getting close to a town, there are a few houses and signs.

This map is named "Sleeping Child." I'll bet there is a mountain in the area with that name!

Yes, I guess that now that it's just the two of us it does get lonely on the road if one of us drops out for a day or two ... I hope someone else will jump in before you finish your trail, Laurie!

Loooong straight shot through green rolling fields right to the horizon. There's a corn field on the right, otherwise it's just green grass and a few scattered trees.
Oh, and I didn't notice yesterday that I must have crossed state lines again over the weekend. Kansas here I come!

I'm going straight up another rise, there's a big silver-y barn to the right of the road, can't say if it's metal or weathered wood.

Laurie, I had been wondering if Chief Joseph would be waiting for you at the top!

Going through a small town, there are buildings left and right but I can't see much the picture quality is very poor.

Going around a curve and over a hill top, can't see where I'm going. There's tree tops, and a bit of horse corral fence on the right.

Wooded hills on the other side of a valley ahead, I am following a car and the sun reflects off the rear window.

I am getting closer to Walnut Grove, looking out for the little house on the prairie ... ;-)

Maybe, or people fall asleep on those long, uneventful stretches?

I'm still going very straight through fields with a few trees and wooded hills in the distance, but there's a dip in the road coming up that and a few big barns on the left.

Some of these stretches are pretty much the same thing day after day. But the mountains make it interesting. Significant amount of tire rubber on the road here, wonder if there has been some drag racing going on.

Laurie, I'm sure we will not be alone for long. And as long as it's the two of us it will not get boring!

I'm crossing another another open stretch between woods, but I can see more trees in the distance already. On my right is a driveway with a mailbox, a single big tree and a bit of fence, there must be a house somewhere but I can't see it in the shade of the big tree.
