Day 4 – Fort Thompson to Mitchell

The wind today was just as strong – only it went in the opposite direction. We were pushed back with every pedal pump, and we learned that headwinds make every hill steeper. On the plus side, we managed to evade a rainstorm that developed to our south, and the temperature was always wonderful! On every windy day, we’ve noticed that ranch cattle tend to put their backsides to the wind. We’re not posting pictures of that, so we don’t offend.
We arrived in Mitchell and toured around for a while, checking out the Corn Palace and the corn-themed shops around town before we ate at a local restaurant that had an entire section in its menu dedicated to corn. Get the picture yet?
Our campsite is wonderful, overlooking the lake and in a small forest. Nothing related to corn here.
