As dinner and pie had been so good the night before I decided I would eat breakfast at Cookies' Cafe in Golden City. I ordered biscuit and gravy along with a piece of blackberry pie. They said I would have to wait a bit for the pie as it was still in the oven. Just as I was finishing my biscuits the pie was delivered. I was warned to wait a bit as it would be very hot, no warning was really needed as the pie was bubbling on the plate. All was excellent.
As I have traveled now into a more prairie type area I am seeing different wildflowers. Some I had seen in other areas but they are more abundant in the prairies.
The route passed west through Pittsburg, Kansas and then turned north toward Girard, Kansas. From Girard the continued north a bit and then turned west again. I stayed at the Immanuel Lutheran Church out in the countryside about 13 miles from Girard near the small town of Hepler. The church opens their fellowship hall to cyclist to stay the night or just take a break. It was an excellent place to stay.
