    McDonough State Forest

    Still on vacation and wife was busy running her 82 yr. old father to Dr. appts. and grocery shopping so what am I supposed to do. Home alone with a high of 93 degrees forecast, slight chance of rain latter, and a garage with a TW sitting in it. On the road again! Suffered through almost 50 miles one way of pavement riding to get to McDonough State Forest and explore seasonal roads and trails.

    Went past this road on the way to my destination and did a u-turn, had to find out where it went. Took me an extra hour to explore this road. Eventually turns into a rarely used trail that connected to a seasonal road I discovered from a previous ride. Well worth the detour.

    Best looking corn I've seen. They must get more rain than we do in my area.

    Fire watch tower can be seen behind the barn.

    Yup, a medium is $3.20 and was almost too big, but it was just what I needed to cool off.
