Catch Up – Wisconsin

This past week, I went up to Wisconsin for a business trip.  This is my fourth trip to the state and I continue to be struck by its beauty.  This trip was especially pretty– their leaves are just starting to turn! 

This time around, Larry and I were in La Crosse, Wisconsin near the Minnesota border.  We took a couple of hours one evening to drive around and explore.  We visited Grandad Bluff, a rocky outcropping that stands a whole 590′ over the city.  We also took a drive on Apple Blossom Scenic Drive in Minnesota.

But, I didn’t have to go very far for the best view of the trip!  On our final morning, my alarm went off.  I thought about the obligations of my day and I was relunctant to rise.  But, I did get up.  I shuffled over to my window, opened the curtains and found a lovely view accompanied by a morning fog.

And suddenly, I was invigorated and ready for my day!  Coffee can’t compete with the energy this good earth gives me.  Nature is my favorite stimulant (apologies, soy lattes!) 

And with that happy note, it is time for bed.  As usual, more pictures of La Crosse, Wisconsin are available on my Flickr site.
