The last week of four

We are on the last week of our vacation. It is turning out to be our vacation from vacation. This is the third day we have seen nothing that compares to the scenery in the mountains, lakes and oceans of the west. Today we rode from Rochester, MN to Wausau, WI. Nothing but the Mississippi River. Listening to that, we said "nothing" but the mighty Mississippi. You get that way after seeing the Serria-Nevadas and the Rockies. But, being together continues to make this the best 15 year anniversary gift ever. We are truly relaxing. We found a great little restaurant in Wausau. This is thanks to Robin's endless pursuit of reading the little folders in the hotel room. If David were in charge of gathering data we would never know a thing about the city we are in. He would just look out the window for the first pretty sign and then eat there. We did that once in one of the cities and ended up eating something we couldn't recognize. We are down to just four or five days left, but no rain forecast for until the day we are supposed to actually arrive home. Tomorrow we arrive back in Michigan at Escanaba. Thanks for all your prayers.
