Heading to Superior WI

You can read about our trip from the beginning here
Saturday morning we awoke to rain and severe weather warnings, but since we are on time constraints we had to head out anyway.    The weather broke up after about an hour (thank you, Lord) and we proceeded to drive across Indiana.

More rolling hills and now we started to hit the corrnfields.

Next was Illinois and the terrain changed to flatter land with lots more CORN!

This was an interesting drive as we passed miles and miles of corn and soybean fields. The land is very flat so it is easy to see the contours of the farmland and the farmhouses. There are many really beautiful houses and unusual barns on this road which made the drive really interesting.

The most interesting part of the drive was the huge wind turbines which dotted the landscape. These turbines are turned by the wind to create electricity. Really neat to see!

We spent Saturday night in a little town called Beloit, WI. The next day we headed to Superior, WI for the final leg of the first part of our journey.  This seemed like the longest part of our trip because of so much road construction, but there was still a lot to see.

We saw a few monoliths on the side of the road but we passed them so fast I could not get a photo. 

We visited WisDells an area similar to Gatlinburg, TN with lots of attractions.  It was really crowded but looked like a very interesting area.

I am so glad to have finally arrived and we are enjoying the spring weather.  It was 45 degrees when we arrived.  Sure am glad I brought a jacket!  See the next part of our adventure here.http://pattisoriginals-pattisplace.blogspot.com/2011/06/adventure-part-3-superior-wisconsin.html
