Tom and I are always looking for places to ride our bikes without a lot of traffic. This morning we headed out to the Femme Osage Valley north of Dutzow, MO. This area was settled in 1830 and is very close to the Daniel Boone Home. Some of the grave markers in this cemetery had dates back into the 1700's. Can you imagine how self sufficient these people were living in this valley. I think it is one of the prettiest in this part of the state and the ride was great.
While riding I thought alot about the strength of the people who settled this country. Strong stock.
