Four More States....

Early in June we took another girls' trip. On this trip, we were able to knock off Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, and North Dakota. We saw so many beautiful sites. 

One day we had breakfast in Minnesota, lunch in Wisconsin, and dinner in Michigan.

Just a few highlights....

Wisconsin -- Apostle Island Cruise; saw the sea caves


I couldn't get over how large Lake Superior is; we followed it for miles and miles! 
We did the North Shore Drive along Old Highway Scenic 16


Itasca State Park -- Minnesota's oldest state park
32,000 acres and over 100 lakes
The beginning of the Mississippi River

Trading RVs


After going to the Hill Country, we decided it was time to trade our 5th wheel trailer. Not because we didn't like it--we loved it. We needed to do it so I could help Rick with the driving. It's hard on him going long distances and trying to maintain the level of attention it requires with one eye for distance. Neither of us felt comfortable with me handling it. 

So.... this was our choice. It's a great compromise for us. It is a 31 ft. Class C and easy to handle. (I drove it home the day we bought it.) It has one living room slide and is roomy enough to still have guests. 

Happy Trails!
