A trip from our area of Arkansas to our daughters area of Wisconsin in actuality can be done in about 14 hours. We took 4 1/2 days – yes we didn’t drive much each day – we were busy looking at things along the way.
Here we are in the Wisconsin campground just about ready to leave – just have to get those orange leveling blocks out from under the front tires and we will be on our way. Look at those fall colors – they were turning each day of our 10 day visit.
I lost track of how many times we criss-crossed the Mississippi river. We went from WI to the very eastern edge of Iowa into Illinois at times the first day.
Camped near Rock Island Illinois the first night. We got there plenty early enough to do some sight seeing and stretch our legs. Our first place of interest was a park called Credit Island.
One of the unique things about this park is a small area where they have Victorian area sculptures sitting out in the grass.
And there is this pretty walking/bicycle bridge that you can walk across and see the river.
Such a clear day – just see the reflections in the water.
At the campground there was a walking trail as well. This photo didn’t come out clear but I liked it anyhow.
Next morning we were off to our next stop about 3 or 4 hours down the road.
