Day 88 • May 28, 2012 • Idalia, CO to St. Francis, KS • 30 miles
Kansas greeted us with a fair sky, a tail wind, and a downhill run. After several rough days we decided to take it easy today and took advantage of our good fortune for one of the shortest and fastest rides of the trip. The town of St. Francis had a welcome center with a map that showed where we could camp—a beautiful city park right behind us with electricity and showers, all free. This kind of hospitality was unprecedented and made for a very pleasant stay.
