We said adios last month and went to Minneapolis to pick up the black beast. Lots of extras will make this truck extra comfortable for the voyages ahead of us.
|Hiking Perrot Ridge|
Plans are underway for a visit this summer to several state parks in Wisconsin-Yellowstone, Brunet Island, Copper Falls and Governor Dodge. Also a side trip to Frontenac State Park in Minnesota. We are ready for some camping fun.
We went on a trial run Saturday night camping at Perrot State Park. As we woke up Saturday morning to snow, it wasn't a no go. We are Ram tough.
|Perrot Ridge towards Refuge|
It was a perfect weekend for camping. Hardly another soul around. Some boy scouts, but they were probably rewarded with badges. We were rewarded with a lovely sunset, the sounds of birds and a spring hike along Perrot Ridge.
|Perrot Ridge towards Mississippi|
One of the best times of year to hike this trail since you get a 360 degree view of the area surrounding Perrot.
Plus no bugs when it's this cool

|Anemonies in Bloom|
Along our hikes we saw plants returning to Perrot, plus a squadron of Pelicans
This time we chose electrical site 46. It gave us a view of Trempealeau Bay since the leaves have not yet emerged. Also a walk over to site 44 for a sunset view.
When all was done I got my Urban Boot Badge
(15,000 steps in a day)
and I hardly noticed.
FYI that's Fitbit talk.
