And so we did...follow the Cowboy trail. The old railroad grade paralleled the highway. And so we traveled together all 189 miles of completed trail. Do you see the rails-to-trails beside the highway?
Until we finally got close to Valentine, Nebraska...and see what we knew about (research it). One of the longest rails-to-trails bridges in the country. Its a quarter of a mile long and over 145 feet high. We decided to bike it!
So we started down this very lonely trail...no one was on it as we traveled throughout the day and no one was on it now.
We looked down from the bridge to the river below.
We did our little ride at about noon when it was 90 DegF. By 5:00 PM it was 103 DegF. Ugh.
