Just as you leave Rocheport, MO on the trail you ride through an old train tunnel.  I think the ride for the next 5 miles is the most scenic part of the whole Katy Trail. (It was dark and spooky in the middle!  Several people walked their bikes through the middle!

Next guest blogger!

Our next summer time guest blogger is Danny’s mom, Kathy. Check out photos from her recent bike trip starting below.

Guest post from Danny’s mom:

Welcome to our 2 day, 50 mile bike ride along the Katy Trail. It is a recreational rail trail that runs along the former Missouri–Kansas–Texas Railroad. (MKT) It runs mostly along the northern bank of the Missouri River. The nickname “Katy” comes from the phonetic pronunciation of ‘KT’ in the railroad’s abbreviated name, MKT. We rode on sections of the Katy that are also part of the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail, between Boonville and Rocheport, MO, and then another 10 miles east of Rocheport.  Less than 100 yards from the start we saw our first wildlife!!!

Being the arts and crafts type of girl I volunteered to make candles out of vintage teacups for a bridal shower.  Here are all 18 cups.

I love my mountains, not that Pennsylvania mountains can compare to the Alps, but there is nothing like a nice pastoral meadow.  Here is one of my favorite spots at Longwood Gardens.

My small town stole my heart when I discovered the local library is housed in a donated mansion.  This is a book I borrowed last week that I highly recommend.  A little mystery, a little history (although the complete accuracy I can not confirm,) a little bit of adventure, and a whole lot of beautiful strong writing.
