Amnicon Falls Family Camping

We made a family camping trip to Amnicon Falls State Park here in up-north Wisco.  A good time was had by all, I think.  More on that later this week as today post involves some biking.  I made a 19 miler Saturday morning which pales in comparison to the nice young ladies in the above picture.  We stopped and chatted them up this morning while we were on a walk.  They will be completing a long journey within the next few days.  They are almost home from their trip around Lake Superior...AKA The Circle Tour, and for those who don't know how far that is...1300 miles.  These were very pleasant nice young ladies to talk to.  When I see anybody biking with camping gear with them, I make it a point to talk to them.  I admire someone who gets out and does it.  My little 19 miles was still fun, as I explored area I have never ridden before.  

I started from our campsite here at the park.
I passed this windmill along the way.  To prove how a person sees more on a bicycle, or walking for that matter, I have been by here numerous times in an automobile, I had never stopped until today on the bike. 
Website listed under sign.

Nice scenery along the way.

Passed a few farms also.

Mixed in about 5 or 6 miles of gravel at the end.  A good time was had.


  1. Someday, I'll bike around Superior. I've been dreaming of it for years -- good for the ladies for doing it

  2. Circle Tour update...

    I ran into these courageous young women at the intersection of Superior St. and Hwy. 61. The time was 4:55 p.m. (08/02/2009).

    I wished them well as they remembered Rlove2bike. They were all smiles and on their way up the shore.


  3. That is coooool...and when I talked to them, they were all smiles also. They all seem to have a very good attitude and were having fun. I could have talked to them for quite some time, but I didn't want to hold them up any longer than I already did.

  4. i just love how friendly and sociable cyclists are! i often think that if everyone cycled, the world would be a happier place.
