Scenic Road Trip

This past weekend we went on a road trip. On Friday we left for Illinois to visit Zachary's sister Kristanna and husband Bob and their new son, Tristan. It was a beautiful warm sunny day. We got our Walker Brothers fix for lunch, and then headed to their house. This is where I would insert a cute baby picture, but we didn't get one because we were too occupied with a new video camera. We still have to figure out how to add and edit video...
After leaving late that night, we drove up to Beloit to stay for the night. Saturday we were greeted with rain that followed us the rest of the weekend. Our main goal that day was go back to the Great River Roadhouse in De Soto for pizza, a place we discovered on our honeymoon nearly 5 years ago. We have been craving the pizza ever since then and wanted to make it back. We decided to take a scenic route, driving west towards Dubuque and then north along the Mississippi River. After taking a interesting trip through road construction and nearly getting stuck in a mud hole, we made it to the roadhouse. The landscape is amazing in southwestern Wisconsin. Pizza was just as delicious as we remembered. After vowing to be back before another 5 years past, we decided to stay in Viroqua for the night. Sunday, still raining, we drove to Westby and La Crosse, looking for neat shops. We found a great outdoors shop in La Crosse with tons gear. We picked up a few pieces to add to our camping gear. Later on we scouted the Black River State Forest for a future adventure. It was a fantastic weekend, despite the rain and fog. Great scenery and fun country back roads.
