The road has opened up and this morning just as the tower at Becker faded the water tower in Clear Lake crept around the trees. It took hours to get to it but it did give me spot to concentrate on. I know this isn't flat like I will experience later in the year but, like I said, it is opening...
Today was a short day, we will walk to the outskirts of Saint Cloud tomorrow. When we had made our way to Clear Lake a woman and her son pulled up to talk. She offered for us to park by the silos where we have been moving our perch occasionally to stay in the shade. The Clear Lake Grain Elevator Co-op also sells pet supplies and I was able to get Nice (the dog) a flea and tick treatment. The Co-op gave us a huge bag of high protein food for active dogs, Nice loves it and I am glad to make room for the large bag in the supply van. This must be what they call "Minnesota Nice".
It's been a good day swatting at flies while the freight trains blast their horns forty feet from us. I can sleep right through the blasts. I hope the hens of route 10 aren't driving before dawn, I'd like to get an early start to Saint Cloud.
Have a great day everybody!
