We stayed in the Northern Sky cabin, it has a full kitchen so we ate in some meals but also had some great breakfasts and lunches in the coffee shop.
Bass Lake, from our vantage. Cat thought I was going to drown her in the rowboat our hosts provided, she's like any other cat around water...
We really enjoyed our stay, and will definitely go back there.

It was 94 degrees! Cat was great, she did 32 miles on the Sugar River trail from New Glarus to Albany and back. Did I mention it was hot? Along with the 4 bottles we each swilled down there was iced tea and water that we had with our lunch. After showering and a nap, dinner and a couple of beers were found to be excellent at the Glarner Stube.

We lingered a bit, and turned to the way back. It was a bit windy but the doughnuts were great fuel for the remaining 15 miles.

Brodhead was the starting point this time, because we really wanted to stay at the wonderful hotel right at the trail head. Earth Rider Cycling is a lovely little hotel upstairs, and a real bike shop downstairs. The decor is all about le Tour de France, and each room pays homage to a different rider of that race. Bike friendly and comfortable, we really enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning.
The ride itself was interesting, after a big small-town breakfast at the restaurant a couple of doors down from Earth Rider, we headed out on a trail that was wet from a heavy storm the night before. We made about 7 miles, clearing limbs where they fell across the trail, when we were caught by a fairly heavy shower. Honey was convinced that the rain would not last, and as we continued it did clear up. At about 11 miles we were stopped by a small tree that had fallen, so we turned around and beat it back to the hotel, then we could get in a shower before going home. Though not as long as expected, it was still a nice ride.

The Kinnickinnic river parkway is near our home, it's part of the Oak Leaf trail. We started on that, then cut across town towards the Honey Creek and Root River parkways, which took us to Greenfield park.
The New Berlin Rec trail is a great way to get from Milwaukee to Waukesha. One must traverse some city streets to reach the Glacial Drumlin trail, but it's pleasant, and there are coffee shops!

We're all set for Jazz in the park . I purchased a great little wagon from a nice guy who had posted it on Craigslist. Now I can grab a couple of sandwiches, pack some beverages, and go stake out a spot in the park. Shortly thereafter, my honey will get off of work and come down to meet me. This is pretty much heaven for us, and one of the best parts of Milwaukee's summer. Click the picture for a biggee if you wish a better look at the neighbors' puppy.
