Simply a shot looking out across Wisconsin corn fields. Farm after farm...

Another shot of Wisconsin.

Today I have continued to be amazed at the beauty of our United States of America. Listening to Garrison Keillor’s Prairie Home Companion podcasts, we drove through corn fields, past dairies, and along rivers I can only describe as “picturesque”. I felt as if I was driving through calendar pictures all day long.

We have stopped for the night in Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin, located in the beautiful Upper Mississippi River Valley. We are currently following the Great River Road, which winds for 250 miles along the banks of the Mississippi River. We are absolutely enjoying this National Scenic Byway and I see why one of my favorite Food Network stars (Alton Brown) chose to ride this byway on his motorcycle when he filmed his second season of Feasting on Asphalt (which he titled “The River Run”). Despite the road having numerous spots of weather damage this is still an incredible scenic byway!

Happy Travels,
