Day 083 - Sedalia to La Monte MO
Temps were in the 60's and 70's under an overcast sky.
Scott Joplin lived in Sedalia as a boy. There is a park dedicated to him. Each year they have a Scott Joplin Ragtime Festival in June. I love ragtime music. I'm here too early.
Sedalia is also the location of the beautifully restored Katy Depot which serves as museum and visitors center.
I walked by a Tyson processing plant for chickens and turkeys. I was stopped by a gentleman wanting to know if I wanted a ride then gave me a donation.
Towards the end of the walk I had a private air show put on by the B-2 Stealth Bombers out of Whiteman Air Force Base. I can't think of any plane I've seen that maneuvers quite like the B-2. I then passed an old garage with a mural on it imploring you to buy a 50's Chevy on Highway 50.
Thanks to Dennis Rich of the Sedalia Democrat who did an interview before I started the walk.
Trivia Question: Katy Trail State Park passes thru the Katy Depot. What is Katy Trail State Park known for?
