For the whole time beside the canal, I've been seeing an occasional large fish flopping along near the banks, but I didn't know what they were. Here's the answer. Carp. Sorry for the icky picture, but it shows you that I do mean big. Not the most desirable fish, but now I do remember being told there were carp in the canal.
I keep telling you it's hot in North Dakota. Now I have "proof."
Actually, today's temperature was much better, but I hiked short miles as part of the recovery effort from yesterday. The tendon in the side of my leg that I angered yesterday is still not happy, but it's not worse. Tomorrow, I'll up the mileage a little. We are also going to try to get me hiking earlier so I can be done before it gets too hot.
We moved the trailer today, and we want to thank Pastor Steve from Turtle Lake where we last stayed.
Sunny had a nice grassy spot beside the church. We were given a key and use of the bathrooms and kitchen. It was really nice.
Here is today's lonely North Dakota picture.
Miles today: 10.3. Total miles so far: 2543.9
