The day could best be described as sultry. It wasn't excessively hot, but it sure was humid. Like breathing water. And then it started raining again. The only thing that really saved it was a breeze, sometimes stiff. Moving air was good!
I finally passed a field of something besides corn and soybeans. Can you tell what it is? Cabbages!
Also, there was this really interesting octagonal house, built in 1848. Ohio comes up with some interesting architectural surprises.
Ester met me for lunch. Actually she scooped me off the road just before the worst of the rain. That kept me from getting completely soaked. After lunch, I stripped the pack down to the essentials- water, map, TP and a snack, and walked on to finish the day in lighter rain. 15.7 miles again.
The best event of the evening was this cricket. I haven't seen too many light colored ones. Not sure if it's some kind of camel cricket. But look at the antennae!
The rain MAY be done, so I am getting out early to hopefully be done before it gets too hot!
