Out of Michigan, into Wisconisn

Hello from the Atlanta Bread Company parking lot in Green Bay; we drove in toward Green Bay to pick up some Verizon Broadband service.


We saw Sault (apparently pronounced "Soo") Ste. Marie yesterday, however as luck would have it there were no large ships passing through the locks, only some tour boats. So we went to the Taquamenon falls a bit north of there, which were cool, but and there wasn’t much water flowing. The entire experience was reminiscent of our trip to Hawaii to see the lava that had been flowing for 20 years straight, however the day we were there none was flowing. Same thing with the ships in Ste Marie… busiest/largest locking system in the world… no ships the day we are there. Oh well, still a fun, pretty drive.


We stayed in Cedar River, Michigan last night… a great little state park called J.W. Wells. The state park systems are the way to go, each one we have stayed in so far has been by far the cleanest facilities, nicest grounds and limited amount of campground hooligans.


This morning it started to rain on the tent, so we packed up early (6:00 AM) and left before the thunderstorms set in…


We are going mountain biking in Kettle Moraine State Park today and will be in Madison Wisconsin tomorrow…

Since you got your bad luck out of the way on your "first" day, I'm sure the rest of the trip will be fabulous. Sara, I like the orange jacket.

Have a great time.
