A Couple of Days in the National Forest

After leaving Mike's cabin, Julia and I hitched up and drove southeast for about 45 minutes into the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest (say that three times fast).   I've stayed at Boulder Lake campground before, but Julia has not. Most sites are reservation only, but some of the less popular sites are set aside for first come, first serve.   Except for the lakefront sites, most of the campground is well-spaced.  There are showers and a dump station.   We enjoyed a couple of relaxing days here.

Green Giant

During the last week of May, we moved Justin into the summer dorms at UW Whitewater. He will be taking chemistry this summer. Good luck, Justin.

We were on our way west. Our first stop was Blue Earth, Minnesota, where we stayed at the county fairgrounds’ campground. 

Blue Earth is famous for, you guessed it, the Jolly Green Giant and little sprouts too. 

But the real reason for stopping in Blue Earth was to see our friends, Brent and Michele. We had a quick dinner at a local Mexican restaurant and then spent time at their home catching up.

It was a great start to our trip. Next stop: South Dakota. There will be dispersed.camping. Julia is excited, kinda, sorta.


  1. Um....I have to ask...what, pray tell, is there in South Dakota to elicit anything more than, yuh know, "kinda, sorta?"

    Of course, yuh muz be doin' sumpin' right. I mean, she hasn't yet come out with, "I don't THINK so!" (Has she?) : - )

  2. We have been to South Dakota together several times. We both enjoy the state although I probably like it better. Trails, wildlife, incredible scenery are the top draws for us.

    1. And here I thought it was a facsimile of Kansas.

    2. I'll be interested in seeing what you find.
