Lincoln was the ultimate destination of Day 4 on BAK, but not before that hellish wind blew us through both Paradise and the Garden of Eden! The old water tower in Paradise, KS and the bizarre art (and lunch on a theater stage) in Lucas provided the day's sightseeing.

I did not linger as a tourist too long at either site, trying to beat the heat and ride 68 miles, as shown at Garmin Connect or at Ride With GPS.

...that drove us through Paradise... the Garden of Eden.

The cherry pie went with tasty buffalo stew (with fresh veggies in it).

There's a storm brewing...
