Thinking About Summer

After another morning of shoveling snow I decided to warm up by looking at some old photographs of warmer times.  I ran across some photos of our bicycle trip to the Sugar River Trail in Wisconsin back in the summer of 2003.  It was one of the hottest days of the year.  Plenty of humidity and no refreshing breeze.  Quite different from today’s cold north winds and blowing snow.

The Sugar River Trail features a covered bridge near Brodhead Wisconsin.  The trail is carved out of an out railroad bed and is composed of crushed limestone.  It is one of the most scenic and enjoyable trails within a couple hours drive of the Quad Cities.  It runs from New Glarus to Brodhead for a total of about 23 miles one way.

There, now I feel warmer.  Time to go shovel some more snow.  I’ll write more about some of our favorite Wisconsin destinations in the coming weeks.
