Boscobel Wisconsin - Gays Mills, Prairie Du Chien and Pike's Peak

Chunk Keisling of Wisconsin and Jim Ayres of West Virginia were planning a ride of Wisconsin back roads so we joined them. First stop was Gays Mills for pie, a tradition we started a couple of years ago. Then we crisscrossed the county roads east of the Mississippi river until we ran out and we headed down to Prairie Du Chien to visit Cabella’s, a large outfitter’s store, and Wal-Mart.

We crossed the Mississippi into Iowa and went south on the Great River Road, stopping at Pike’s Peak (no, the other one) to enjoy the view (Chunk on the left and Jim Ayres on the right). We then headed further south, caught a small ferry back across the river to Wisconsin and returned to Boscobel in time for the catered supper at the park.

The evening found us back around the campfire but it was an early night since we were heading north in the morning.
