Road Trip - Upper Mississippi

With a beautiful October Saturday on deck, CG and I made a last-minute decision to take a little road trip to the upper Mississippi river, and headed out last night. We spent today touring the little towns on both the Wisconsin and Minnesota sides of the river.  Peak color is past, but there were still spots of brilliance here and there.
We arrived at one of the locks just as a barge was going through.

The Nelson Creamery was our lunch stop.  This former cheese factory now serves the best sandwiches...and ice cream!
You can also buy hundreds of varieties of our delicious Wisconsin cheese.
The sense of history in the old towns is palpable.

You can borrow a bike in Stockholm...

We stopped at a few antiques shops; honestly, none were very exciting...but you never know!

We're spending the night above a storefront on the river...tomorrow we head home.

 Did you do something fun this weekend?
