When in Rome... Wisconsin
We headed out of Prairie du Chien and crossed the southern edge of Madison to our next destination, Kettle Moraine State Park. Along the way, we caught some great views of the Wisconsin landscape.
For some, the journey is the best part of a destination. This area is beautiful, like this farm near Monfort, Wisconsin.
Ran across a cool, almost complete ghost town, but still an active farming community of Edmund.
And of course, plenty of barns to fill Kathy's obsession.

But we couldn't find a spot left at Kettle Moraine State Park for our travel trailer. So we searched and searched and landed at an RV Park in Rome, Wisconsin, near Sullivan. This view from the back of Pickets General Store in Rome is very similar to what we find just yards away from our trailer. Neat place and very friendly management.
From there we explored the area for a day enjoying the Wisconsin Summer.

What do you do with an old road through the woods? You rename it a Rustic Road. This is Rustic Road 86 and was one of several beautiful rustic roads we explored.
We've spotted several Sandhill Cranes while in this area, at least that's what we believe them to be. They appeared to enjoy this barn as much as Kathy did.
Hey, they grow beer here! This is Pabst Farm No 1 near Oconomowoc, WI.
And of course, more Barns
So that's pretty much how we occupied our time in Rome the first day. Our primary target of this area though is Old World Wisconsin, and we were in for a TREAT. That will be a photoblog on its own.
