Adjusting to our arrival here, we made a short trip out to Major Bong State Park. It was a beautiful 1/2 day adventure – very solitary, and many beautiful birds along the 5 mile trail. A very diverse park. No pictures.
A little bit later, we visited the Kettle Moraine State Forest enjoying a nice day hike along an old early 1900’s homestead and farm with its own stream refrigeration house. This time I took some pictures. Mostly, there are cross country ski trails through the woods, but it also crosses the 1200 mile Ice Age trail.
We stayed in a hotel for a few days while Petey’s face healed, even though the weather is a nice 60-70 degrees up here. I felt like Petey needed the time to heal, and we got a good weekly rate. This area has some of the most beautiful dog parks in the country – one a 2 mile bird/bike trail, and the other some woods with a stream around it that can be travelled with a mountain bike or hiked. Spin loves wading in the stream.
I worked a little bit on writing, but it is hard to stay motivated without an audience. Now, I think we are back to an explorer phase, with yet another incomplete book. Sometimes, fate does not let one complete the projects one envisioned completing…
