Visiting Wisconsin.

We recently took a trip to Wisconsin to visit Amanda’s family. The first stop of the whirlwind tour was out to eat. We love cheese, and I love fried food, so I was in heaven eating fried cheese curds. These Wisconsinites take their cheese very seriously. Almost as serious as they take their beer consumption.

That night we walked along the water of downtown Milwaukee and it was beautiful. The air was warm and the sky was dark. After our first summer in Alaska, I was surprised by how much I missed the dark skies. I will probably be eating my words this winter, but the dark sky was beautiful at night. Screen Shot 2016-08-15 at 8.36.18 PMMy father in law likes to ride motorcycles more than I do. He offered me one of his bikes one afternoon and I couldn’t say no. It was hot out and beautiful to ride by miles and miles of fields. Blue skies with green fields and an orange bike. I couldn’t stop smiling or sweating.Screen Shot 2016-08-15 at 8.36.36 PMWe never stopped moving on this trip. I was introduced to the Bugline Trail. It is a fully paved trail that passes by homes, limestone quarries, and railroad tracks. It was a lot of fun on a bicycle built for two.Screen Shot 2016-08-15 at 8.37.22 PMEvery ride needs a destination. This ride happened to turn around at a pub that has been around since 1862. We stopped inside for a quick blast of air conditioning. And maybe a beer or two. We definitely had a weasel peter sausage. Thank you Hanson Brothers Pub.
