Ramblin’ (Iowa!)

October 11, 2011 – Day 33 – 23 miles

A headwind is still present, but it’s under the “dangerous” rating, so I must be moving on.  I slowly make my way down the river which is home to hundreds of islands and tributaries at this point.  I often think about how fun it would have been to navigate this river before the dams were built.

As of today, I have officially left the state of Minnesota.  It’s been a wonderful home for the past month, but I must be moving on.  I said my goodbyes while eating a snack on the Minnesota/Iowa border and looking across the river to Wisconsin.

The near-full moon rose over a bluff across the river as I was cooking dinner.  If every night were this beautiful I could stay on this island forever, but the river continues southward and I must be moving on.
