Just dropping in a few photos from the riding so far this week. I knew I would be fighting a slight head wind, but I headed to Superior Wednesday. I stopped by one of Wisconsin's gems, Pattison State Park. (linked)
Twin Little Manitou Falls
Big Manitou Falls...165 foot drop this one is.
I ride mostly country roads, but on this day the ride was to Superior. I found that just cruising the city streets can add up miles fast. I ended the day with a little over 66 miles.
Another ride this week took me out through the burn area of the Germann Road forest fire that started on May 14th and burned about 8000 acres. Although it is hard to put a measure to this, it burned about 9 miles long and 1.5 miles wide. It took 47 structures with 17 of them being homes. I will put a couple links (here) and (here...this one is the DNR report). I rode Douglas County Y to get out to this area...22.5 miles of Bad bad road and but the 16 miles on County A back...Good road!
I met my son's neighbor and did this ride with him. It was great to have company and we plan to do some more riding together. This week has been great riding weather.
Lets get outdoors and have some fun!!
