Biking Day One--Sunday, 8-31 42.5 miles

The morning starts with Pat making coffee--and she is the pro at it!  We walk down to the interpretive center and check out the kids area!
They seem happy now.

The Voyager seems to be a bit serious!
The Lumber Jack-Jill seems a bit confused!
But, they are off for the day
Pat and Rebecca head out of the park, which is about a 5-6 mile road, onto highway 22 and head east, toward Danbury.  As they cross the St. Croix River, into Wisconsin, the wide shoulder becomes very narrow and they decide to find another road to travel on.  They head south and get on F and end up at Bass Lake for lunch.
They make a loop and head back toward the campground.  But, they had to make a stop for a photo op at a cow they passed on the way.  I think it needs a bit of a paint touchup.
Pat again provided us with a laugh with our cocktail attire for this evening:
Rebecca had posted a picture of lunch at Bass Lake on Facebook and got a message that one of her college friends lived close.  Linda came to our campsite that night to join us for supper, bringing some awesome potatoes-ready to go in a tinfoil pan to go on the fire, a cucumber salad, a bottle of homemade wine, along with some wood, including a kitty litter box filled with kindling!  Thank You Linda!  Our supper was a hamburger stuffed with blue cheese made in a pudgy pie, with Linda's vegetables as a side.  Yummy!   Sorry, we did not get a picture before dark with our guest.  The skies were threatening all night and storms were forecast!

  2. Wow, that is a lot miles ladies....great job! Now, about that kids area..... The cow is a bit questionable - but makes for a great photo op! So great that you could catch up with a friend along the way.....too fun!!!

  3. Oh my goodness. How fun are these pics...?? Love the purple cow.(isn't that a drink or something?). It sounds like a nice adventure and I hope the weather is nice for the whole trip. What a fun thing to discover that Linda lived so close...even more fun that she joined you for supper....stay safe and enjoy the trip....
