Day 4 – Short on miles, long on hills

Today was our short day, though we made it a bit longer than the 34 envisioned. Still, 40 miles sounded really easy … except there were plenty of hills, and some were long and steep. On the other hand, we rode some back roads that seem to get so little car traffic, they might as well be trails.

We ended in Clarksville, Virginia’s big lakeside resort town, just north of the North Carolina border.

Here’s some homeowner’s idea of a sculpture garden:

Wonder what prompted the collection of old toilets. This is just a few of them:

Long group dinner and tomorrow is 60 miles to Durham. Time for sleep. More details later.

    I’ve heard locals say that the toilet trees began as a way for him to tick off his ex wife. He continually adds to his collection.
