After my trip through more of the Grand Rounds and a stop at Bob's on Sunday, I headed northwest out of the city.
There's a little road I like that runs from Osseo to Champlin. You can find a map on my Roads to Ride page. I took I-694 to County Rd 81 to get there. The road I am talking about is Fernbrook Ln to 129th Ave N. It ends at County Rd 12 (Dayton River Road).
Here's a pair of shots heading north on Fernbrook Ln.
I headed northwest on County Road 12. I had not gone this way before. It was great because the road is smooth, few stops, and has a 50 mph limit.
I got to Dayton and took this picture looking up at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church. There was a small festival going on but it was too hot & humid to walk around.
I had to head back south but I want to explore more of County Road 12. Along the way, I snapped this picture in front of Winfield Farms. I like riding through farmland - it makes for nice scenery.
