Friday, June 3,2016, 55.5 miles(89.3 km)
The view along the way was mostly as pictured below. Very serene with a view that seemed to go on forever.
The main "building" that each community had no matter how small the community was a grain elevator. Often these are visible for miles sometimes as many as 10 or more miles. With the strong southwest cross/head wind I was riding through sometimes it seemed that I was not getting closer to the elevator I could see and was pedaling toward.
West of Dighton, Kansas was the below shown historical marker about George Washington Carver who had a homestead in the area and later became a renowned agriculture professor at Tuskegee Institute in Alabama.
The day was a demanding one due to the wind. It was not a direct head wind but a crossing wind from the front.
I camped at the Scott City Park on the south side of town. The park was very well cared for. About 11:00 pm the sprinklers came on. My tent was within range of one but not real close and the sprinkler rotated around so my tent was only sprayed a short period of time each rotation. This was not the case for the tent of a couple of German guys, their tent was probably 15 feet from a sprinkler that did not rotate and sprayed directly on their tent. They tried covering it with a pot but the water force just moved it away. Fortunately the sprinklers went off after about an hour and we could all go back to sleep.
