What a great day’s ride! It must look from the titles as though we’re entirely stuck in Wisconsin, but in fact most of today’s ride has been in Michigan, through beautiful forests.
One is very conscious of smells on a motorcycle. The scent of the forest is especially seductive. We’ve passed sawmills processing cedar logs, smelling of new beehives. We passed a maple syrup plant. And everywhere is the scent of wildflowers.
