The trail was paved smoothly leaving the More Haven lock and dam. It shot straight as an arrow all the way to Lakeport. A few miles later the trail suddenly gets difficult. As the Sun rises I recall that in the early morning I was chilled but now in the afternoon I am back dressed in short pants. It is a little dreary pushing a lawn the narrow tire track, dusty, pathway. The canal to the West is only a few feet wide but an occasional ranch house and from time to time a horse add some viewing joy.
The S-129 pump station grounds are attractive and peaceful. After a long day I am tempted to stop and rest but in typical fashion plug foreword.
My end point for the day is near the Indian Prairie campsite.
