June 23 Chamberlain

What started as a cold, windy day, blossomed into a warm beautiful one. Wildlife lined the roads. Everybody slowed down a gear and enjoyed the scenery and each other’s company. Our lunch stop was at an ice cream parlor, mmmmmmmmm! While there a woman from the local newspaper interviewed us. She spent an hour and a half talking with us and interviewing us. Educating us on the history and cultural relations with the Native Americans. After napping and lounging around the ice cream shop for a few hours, we made our way to Chamberlain. Today was only 70 miles, so even with the nap/chill sesh, we were able to get to Chamberlain with time and sunlight to spare. A few of us were able to go explore the town and check out the cold Missouri River. Today was a beautiful day! I4kers love this trip more!
