I'm on the way from New Franklin to Huntsdale and all hell has broken loose. It's pouring rain and I'm soaked. I'm glad I took the extra day at the Roundhouse to rest. I am in awe of the bluffs around Rocheport. The railroad tunnel is a sight that will bring me back soon with my wife and son to enjoy. It looks like Rocheport had a tough time with the flooding. The trail was lined with sandbags and you can see how high the water rose in some places. Still a beautiful town. I arrived at the trail head and changed into some dry clothes. I ate at the little diner across from the trail head. It was super! I only paid $6.00 for a lunch so large I couldn't finish it. What a surprise it was when the door opened and in walks the Boy Scout troop from the Roundhouse! They were trying to get a good day of wet biking in. Greetings were passed, I finished lunch and headed out to Huntsdale and Katfish Katy's.
