Little clears our minds better than meandering down the open, back roads or rural America. Add in Fall weather...and the perfect road trip is at hand. We packed up the van and drove home from Portland, OR to Wisconsin. The timing of our visit was perfect. The land was changing before our eyes - grasses, trees, rivers. All of it. Changing from the bright greens of summer, to the tans, reds, and sages of Fall. This time we planned to add three days to our trip so we would not rush from West to East...and back. But to slow down, take our time, and follow our instincts...who knows what we would find.
