Day 087 - Lone Jack to Pleasant Hill MO
Temps were in the 60's and 70's on a mostly sunny day. For the first five miles I traveled east on Missouri 150. I passed a number of really well maintained homes and barns.
I passed the Lone Jack Civil War Museum and a historical marker detailing the battle of Lone Jack. The battle occurred here on August 15 & 16, 1862. It resulted in a Confederate victory.
A short distance away a herd of donkeys came over to check me out. Further down the road I saw a herd of cattle fording a small stream.
Once I got to Missouri 7 I headed south thru the town of Pleasant Hill. Before entering the town I came across a couple horses that followed me the entire width of their property.
After leaving the town I came across a peach and nectarine orchard.
