Wisconsin Winter Wonderland
There I was thinking my blogging exploits would always be connected to moving between Yorkshire and France, and already, half way through January, 2012 has involved travel much further afield.
Visiting Wisconsin to celebrate the life of a friend who died just before Christmas, proved to be slightly more exciting than anticipated. As we arrived in Chicago, so did the first heavy snow of the Wisconsin winter. It seemed incredibly sensible to upgrade our car rental booking, to a 4 wheel drive jeep. It is many years since I have driven in thick snow, or recently ploughed potentially icy roads......and Mark has never witnessed a Wisconsin winter.....so, it was very sensible.
The "do" for my friend was fine... or as fine as these things can be, so this blog is actually about the rest of the trip, and really just an excuse to "publish" some of the gorgeous snowy photos we took.
Just north of Chicago, we decided travelling further north in a blizzard was not a good idea
