Well 650 miles today (1/4 there) and I’m here in La Cross Wisconsin. Do I not miss the traffic in Chicago! The dogs were great considering the 10hrs drive and a bit of rain. We walked in a big State Park just south of Madison, Wi. There were fields of wild yellow cone flowers that reminded me of the days shooting the prairies while I lived in Illinois. They are really pretty in their own way.
La Cross is on the Wisconsin-Minnesota border. Tomorrow its supposed to be blazing hot in South Dakota so I’ll pace myself.
