Easy Tuesday trip ends in Des Moines

(Continued)

After a brief stop in Van Meter, it was 14 miles to the historic Valley Junction in West Des Moines. That was an easy ride other than a long climb out of Van Meter.

When we arrived in Valley Junction, you could tell the place was definitely prepared for a party. Many of the workers were wearing 1980s clothing (must have been the theme), which was quite a sight.

Then it was just a quick four-mile ride to Des Moines, where we are camping in a somewhat muddy Waterworks Park.

Wednesday is another short day to Knoxville. I’ll check in then.
