Wind Therapy: Last day of my Ozarks trip

 

TravelEminence, MO – Today was my last full day of riding through this part of the country.  It’s been quite an experience, and I’ve learned so much about the people and the region.

I started the day as usual with a hot cup of coffee, and some morning chatter with the locals. The buzz this morning was about this weekend’s big trail ride, bringing loads of horses and their riders. The rooms are all booked, the cabins are taken, and Eminence, Missouri will be covered with visitors.

They’ll have a big time.
