Our first dusting of snow - about a month later than usual. The dogs are bored. Rain all day yesterday so no walk. And the walks we do take are after dark because of the gun deer season.

Fire in the sky over the neighbors machine shed. The days just keep getting shorter and shorter… Snow flurries this morning while I walked the dogs.

My Birthday Adventure - Biking the Ahnapee

Image
Last week I turned 34 so we went on a little adventure to celebrate. October was a rough month for us and it felt so good to get away for a day to do something fun together.

We loaded the bikes on the car and drove to southern Door County where we would start our ride on the Ahnapee State Trail. The Ahnapee is a 48-mile Wisconsin Rail Trail that runs from Sturgeon Bay to Kewaunee. 


48 miles is too far for me to bike in a day so we decided to bike just a section of the trail from Maplewood to Algoma and back - about 20 miles total. Maplewood doesn't have a trailhead but I emailed the town clerk ahead of time and she suggested we park at the town hall just down the road from the trail so that's what we did!


The trail from Maplewood to Forestville was mostly through agricultural land. We passed through a park in Forestville that had a nice, clean restroom (with pit toilets but they didn't stink) which was great because we both needed to blow our drippy noses due to the brisk air…
