On Monday morning, the 16th, Cindy, Christy and I took a ride with Uber to the Atlanta International Airport. Christy would fly back to Ohio, I would fly to Wisconsin for work, and Cindy, instead of flying to visit family in Ohio as usual, decided to accompany me to the north woods of Wisconsin. We landed in Minneapolis/St. Paul around 2 p.m. and then drove the four hours to Park Falls in our rental car. I would be working 24-hour shifts on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Monday, with 24 hours off in between.
So, Tuesday I worked. Cindy visited with me for a few hours in my work/dictation room, but spent most of the day enjoying life in Munro Manor, a four-room bed and breakfast (which no longer does breakfast… I guess that makes it just a bed.). It’s lovely however and she loves the accommodations.
On Wednesday, Cindy picked me up at 8 a.m. when my shift ended. I showered back at Munro Manor, and soon we were off for the forty-minute drive north on Route 13 to Copper Falls State Park. I visited (and blogged about) this place on my last excursion to northern Wisconsin to work, but I thought Cindy would enjoy it. It was perhaps better than it was before. The fall colors, although past their peak brilliance, still provided a beautiful backdrop of mostly yellows for our hike along the Doughboy Trail and the Bad River. The water seemed to be flowing more strongly over the several falls as well. It was a lovely afternoon spent hiking in warmer than usual mid-October temperatures (It was sunny and around 70 degrees).
