By the time this posts we will have departed Highland Ridge and moved to Willow River State Park for two weeks. Before leaving the topic for the blog I wanted to put just a couple images of the area. This is hilly country. There is good soil here. The area is partially populated by a community of Amish with their ways and their wagons and home crafts including some marvelous food — baked, produced, and furniture. There is a cheese factory (Cady Cheese Compan) about 3 miles from the campground, a lovely little town with several restaurants, a hardware store, grocery, and — of course — a laundromat. This is Wisconsin hardwoods forest country with farming fields cut out from the forests with lots of hard work — but the farms here prosper in spite of the shorter growing season that is just part of Northern Wisconsin.
We like all the places we’ve stayed with the Corps, but I have to say that the intimacy of the forest here, and the few campsites (50 some) make this a really lovely place that resonates with our soul.
Thanks for stopping, and I’ll talk with you tomorrow.
