Cheri and I are taking a few days off to wander the wooded hills of southern Wisconsin. We're driving scenic routes along the Mississippi River, then taking back roads through Wildcat Mountain State Park, and staying in the beautiful, historic little town of Mineral Point. We've had a busy September/October, so we're very thankful to be enjoying few restful days off.
