Continuing On Down To Edgemont SD-Tuesday, September 28




We biked over a former RR trestle that became so weak that the engineers of the Burlington Northern would leap off the train as it slowly traversed the trestle, then they jumped back on as the locomotive gained solid ground once again. Our 109 mile bike trek ended in Edgemont, where trains filled with high quality coal pass on their way to the East. T. Roosevelt came here in 1906, and instead of dining with the area's dignitaries, he chose to share bacon and beans with local cowboys. As for us, we found an inviting cafe where the lemonade glasses were filled until we were fully satisfied. This was a fabulous three days.
