After having worked Friday, Saturday, and Sunday for many months, I finally was given some Sundays off, the better to be able to spend some quality time with my husband!  Although I’m a walker, he’s a cyclist, so I went online to find somewhere he hadn’t cycled that we could enjoy.  So…

Two weekends ago, we ventured up Rt. 59 which, being a highway running through many Chicago suburbs, takes ages to deposit you anywhere.  Not long before we would have arrived in Wisconsin, we pulled into Moraine Hills State Park,  named for the rocky debris left by a glacier.  As you might imagine, there are lots of marshes and wetlands here.  In fact, there are several areas of wetland reclamation and where there’s water, there’s often good fishing!
