Head Out On the Highway, Looking For Adventure
On the same adventure to the Niota Fish Market we stopped at a rest area to check out a map of local attractions. It was here we noticed a set of stairs rising to the bluff above. Hmmm. A stairway to heaven. Something like that is like waving a red cape in front of a bull.
As you can see it was a two phase climb. The first set rises to a small area with a bench for old bulls to rest, and then on to the next set that takes you to an observation area.
The payoff is quite nice, really. A view of the river and we even had the pleasure of a barge to watch. The one drawback was the evidence of past climbers - not a lot but enough trash strewn about let you remember what pigs we are.
Because I knew the question would come up I counted the number of steps. Ninety-four. Going down was easier than going up, in case someone would want that info, too.
In what was a first for me, a single roadway branching into four. How neat is that? Our purpose in this back road cruising was to find a cemetery that was billed as the "Historic Myers Cemetery" on a sign back on the main highway. We took the second from the right road and I have to come back on the cycle to this area. Overgrown back roads that is a cyclist dream. We did find the cemetery but no word on why it was historic.
A fun trip - we found adventure.
