Day Two

After a wonderful breakfast at Bob & Judi’s we headed west to Amish Country.  Wisconsin state highway 33 rolls right through the middle of it.  With all of the recent rains, everything appears so lush and green.

We turned south of LaCrosse along the river in time to see this old steam train pass by on it’s way to a festival in Chicago.

The rest of the day was spent meandering our way back home past cornfields, soybean fields, lots and lots of cows (Wisconsin is the dairy state, ya know) and

even some Wind fields.

Even though it was tad bit chilly and wet, it’s always nice to get away for a couple of days and re-connect with your best traveling partner.


  1. Great pictures. Wisconsin roads always seem to be in pretty good shape, conpared to a lot of Iowa road, and it's hard to find a gravel road in Wisconsin, so the scenery is more abundant.

    Spending time with Louie on the bike is the best way for us to be together, and a lot of time we don't even talk....just being with each other is the absolute best. I know what you mean.
    Be blessed,

  2. Beautiful scenery! Thanks for the tour!

  3. 'Morning. I always love reading your posts, but I'm reallyreally loving going on tour with you.

    We tend to never leave home because, well, I have no idea! We're just lazy that way. But it's been cool seeing your photos and reading your "travel journal". Thanks for taking me along. :) Carol

    ps. I did tell my husband that before he goes back to work, I want us to do one of our country rides, like we used to BC (before children).

  4. what fun you have! I'm envious for sure.
