|A sign worth observing|
We stopped in Hitchcock for lunch, and were invited by some folks to join their table. What a small world connection we found today! Barbara and Jon were visiting their mother, Esther. Barbara lives in northern California now, and when we said we were from Redlands, she said she had a friend there! So - if any of my Redlands readers know Lynn and Steve Wolden, tell them that Barb Christwitz says "hello"!

We also stopped in to visit the museum, which is just chock full of western memorabilia, old household items, toys, riding tack and historical items from Hitchcock's past. Ray and his mother have assembled most of the items, and he maintains the collection. We got to meet her when we stopped by to fill our water bottles from their well.

By the way, the anticipated headwinds did not materialize - we had a much better day than expected, though still pretty long in the saddle.
The day's report: Miller to Willow Lake, 82 miles, 3361 to date
