Today felt like a fairly short day. The terrain was mostly flat and we passed by farm after farm of corn and soybeans. Those were the only two crops I could identify, though I’m sure there were others.

When Dolores and I arrived at camp, Mary drove in not long after to check on us. She asked if we found everything we needed. Dolores mentioned that we did except for a dessert. Mary then drove away and a little while later came back with a homemade pie! We had a storm at dinnertime, but that pie should made it less noticeable!
From the moment I arrived at camp I began making the preparations for dinner and so didn’t have time to set up my tent and get cleaned up. By the time dinner was finished it was still raining and I was able to set up under the pavilion where we ate – this was a good bit of luck.
