Tuesday, August 14 – James spent the night in Bemidji, MN.
Wednesday, August 15 – This morning was laundry day. James included a little shopping as well before he left the Paul Bunyon trail and started on the Heartland Trail. There are a lot of purple and yellow wildflowers along the trail. It reminds him of the Coeur d’Alene trail though more hilly and steeper. He’s close to Leech Lake. He rode 41 miles today.
