Here is the approach to the I-71 bridge. If look closely there is a semi truck on it - upper left corner of pic.
Here's a shot at the pylons. You can get an idea of the scale and height.
For small distances, the trail will run parallel to a road. There is not much traffic. Here is "Water Over the Dam" - Canoist have to portage around this one. You can see the highway in the foreground.
There are not too many bathrooms or places you can re-fill along the trail. This place was just about half-way for me and very much appreciated. Look close at the waitress, she is bringing out huge piece of cake. It was not for me. I was eating Hammer gel-packs most of the trip.
She was bringing it to these people.
Back home in Loveland.

Days like this make you really appreciate this sport and hobby. For the trip, I averaged 14 mph, with avg cadence of 82 RPM, with some headwind on the way back. Funny thing, this was the first day I wore a jersey and all of a sudden, some of the roadies were actually saying hi to me.
THANK YOU TREK !!! (Shameless plug)
