... the sheep, oxen, ducks,
chickens, and mules. Another fascinating stop was the Nature Center, complete
with native wildflowers , hawks, owls, coyote, red wolves, bobcat, and bald
eagles. The drive- through Elk and Bison Prairie was interesting, too... lots
of bison hanging around, but the elk were all in hiding.
David woke me up at 6:30 this morning... that is a first. He

... a smoking section.....So only passed 1 cyclist going west I was climbing as he was speeding down....the gals said he was from California and headed just to Colorado....
After my 65 miles we had about 8 or so to go and I decided I couldn't do another grade so in the Van I went. My elevation gain today was 2509' so I figured I did a great job for one day... We got in our motel around 6pm and Jane couldn't be found she did all ...
... around the table talking and laughing (mainly because of Merrill, he is so hilarious) I said to myself...these are the moments that we ride for, they give us the extra something to keep going. For the 4th of July Clint took us all to Alice Springs, where the big red famous mill stands along the aqua clean free flowing springs. Absolutely breathtaking! Rocky Falls was our next stop.

I called Laura and we discussed my options and decided that this is where my ride across America should stop. There is not a bike shop within 100 miles according to the locals so picking up a tube would be out of the question.

TravelPod Member ReviewsWilderness Lodge Lesterville
This area of Missouri has much going for it. Why is this the best Lodge in the Area? Good people, good facilities and excellent food - That's why. We were in hilltop cabin # 18. Really enjoyed the large screened-in porch and fireplace. The facility was very well manicured and maintained. With access to the Black River thru their sister site Riversedge, we enjoyed the lazy days of fall without all the people pressure (and noise) of high season.
Why not 5 Stars? Everywhere has opportunity for improvement - including Wilderness lodge.
For the money, you will NOT have a better experience in the area.
