Day 32: Rochester, MN to LaCrosse, WI - 90 miles with 2,850' of climbing

We started riding today in rain gear as we had horizontal rain and headwinds for the first 20 miles. After that we another 30 miles with a light drizzle then a few more miles of hard rain before we were able to put our rain gear away for the rest of the ride. We had a ten mile section of bike path that wrapped through forest and cropland before ending at the Houston Nature Center where they had many owl and birds of prey on display.
As we left Minnesota we took pictures at the Wisconsin state line sign and then again as we crossed the Mississippi River on our way into LaCrosse.

Considering the rain and headwinds the 90 miles went by pretty fast.

Roadkill count: 303
Flats: 3
Hurts: None
