July 14; Laundry & Lunch
Louise has taken on the role of support and Dave has returned home. Louise ran with Megan for 3 miles and back to the support vehicle. After the morning run, it was off to find a laundry in the town of Big Fork. The modern coin operated laundry was right next door to Cafe French, so start the wash go to lunch. With the meal done it was time to check for desert. The waitress reported that all the pies were delicious. She should know - she makes all of them. So they order pecan and blueberry pie while the laundry tumbled dry right next door.
Megan noticed that the amount of road kill has been significantly reduced, although the variety has increased. Today's variety included a bat and a porcupine.
They are staying at a Mn State Park just east of Big Fork called Scenic on Highway 7. Their campsite overlooks the lake, where loons and osprey are not uncommon. (The photo is a view from the campsite.)
The nearest Internet terminal is back in Grand Forks and cell phone coverage may be non-existent in the near future.
