Roadies Ride the Mulberry Part III
At the break/photo-op above the Mulberry, I couldn't resist getting Slick in a shot.
Several hundred feet away, you can see the Mulberry. From our vantage point, we could hear the water rushing over the rocks. Sweet!
We made our way back from the junction of 215 and 23 and through Oark, AR. About a mile west of Catalpa, we stopped at the "swinging bridge". The swinging bridge is an alternate route across the river to the road and the mail box when the river is running high and the low water bridge is covered.
Here's a part of the crew perched on the bridge. And yes it swings when one walks across it. Once you establish a walking cadence which resonates with the swinging, you're OK.
Food awaits! Back at the Catalpa, we replaced calories burned with honest-to-goodness real food!
Those are yeast rolls made from scratch. They are huge. They are to die for!!!
And what better way to tie the ribbons on an outstanding ride with an outstanding group.
