All the VROCers left on Sunday. Have decided to stay for a few days and ride the Ozarks which are rolling hills and forests of oak trees. Highlights – Bullshoals Lake and the road ferry, Pig Tail route, Beaver Creek and dam. The leaves are about 3 weeks from turning red and yellow and it is a real pity that I won't see it – they will stretch for as far as the eye can see. I gather the colour also brings out the tourists. It's cool at night and foggy each morning.
