Chimney on the roof of the Crow Lake Township Hall in Stearns County, Minnesota
Today’s ride began in Willmar, Minnesota (in Kandiyohi County) took me north to a bit of Stearns County, and then back almost to the starting point. At the northernmost part of the ride I took the above photo of the chimney on the roof of the Crow Lake Township Hall.
I made first-time visits to seven township halls, bringing the total for the last three years to about 304. The ride was 71.5 miles long, bringing the total mileage for the year to 2937.
The roads and trails were good (including several miles of gravel) and the traffic was friendly.
