Our Road Trip West – The Park Tour

Enjoying the outdoors is one of the things we really enjoy doing on our vacations.  To incorporate that part into our trip we wanted to visit multiple historic sites and National Parks.  In visiting the ones that we did, I was impressed by how different the landscape is from the Midwest through the Great Plains […]

Our Road Trip West

Laura Lake Campground – Wisconsin

Nestled along the east boarder of the Nicolet National Forest lies a wonderful spot to camp called Laura Lake Campground.  It was the second of two campgrounds that we stayed at during our 10 day camping trip last year.  We wanted to visit this campground specifically because it was one of the highest recommended places […]

Pikes Peak State Park – Iowa

While we were spending time in Southwestern Wisconsin, we also took some time to explore a little bit of Iowa on the other side of the Mississippi.  Although we only spent an afternoon there, it didn’t take us very long to see why it would be worth spending more time in the area. Park Activities […]

Wyalusing State Park – Wisconsin

Every year my wife and I attend a family reunion at Wyalusing State Park.  This last week was the third year we’ve gone.  It’s a great opportunity to spend time with family, play games, and relax.  In years past we’ve tried to see more of the park while we were there, but we usually ran out […]
