DAY 1: Machens to Defiance (32 miles)
Great day on the Katy Trail. Our friend Kim Udell had to drop out of the ride due to hand surgery. So she graciously offered to be our shuttle to Machens.
Highlights: Redbuds blooming, wild flowers, lunch at Trailhead Brewery in St. Charles, downed tree across the trail, a bubbling spring at Weldon Spring, getting to Defiance with a home-cooked meal by Kim and cleanup support by Sue Davisson.
