Day 1 of 8
Thursday, September 15, 2011 the drive up from ne iowa was uneventfull. i arrived in ely at 7:30 am, checked into pirigis and picked up the prism. i made a couple stops in town and headed up to the echo trail for a nice slow drive thru the fall color that was beginning to take place. i had a 6 pack of pig's eye, as my plan for the evening was to sleep in the subaru and enter on friday the 16th of sept.
