Day 47 - Little Falls, NY to Latham, NY (74 miles)

Good morning from Little Falls, NY. There wasn't a really good place to shoot the sunrise from without getting wires or polls in the picture, so I used this one from right in front of the hotel for my start of the day picture.

...was in kind of a scenic picture mood today.

Why is it that anytime they mention nice scenery it means there are hills? Here's one of my roommates, John, near the top of the climb out of the valley.

More scenery along the ride...

Looks like we're starting to get into more industrial areas.

Lock # 8 on the Erie Canal. Much bigger than the ones we saw the other day.

Down south you can tell a good diner by the number of pickups parked outside. Along a bike path, when you see a crowd like this, there's either good food or ice cream.

This place actually had both. Made for a great unofficial SAG stop.

With Joe now having to drop out, our group is getting pretty small. Not sure that Katie and I are the last two, but hopefully no one else will have to drop out before the beach. Sorry I can't say what we've accomplished just yet, but I don't want to jinx anything. Check back in Monday evening and maybe we'll know who all actually kept their memberships in our ever shrinking club.

....and one more nice scenic shot from the bike path to close out the day.

Today had to be one of the nicest days we've had out here as far as weather and roads. Nice wide shoulders and decent tail winds. There were a few small climbs to remind us what the next couple of days will be like though. Sounds like we'll have 5 to 6 thousand feet of climb for each of the next couple of days.

Thanks for reading.
