The little lady and I completed the Fern Dell Gorge Hike within Mirror Lake State Park. We absolutely love the Sauk County area of Wisconsin (aka the Driftless region). This hike was perfect for us.

On our way down through to the Madison area, little lady and I decided to take a visit to Aztalan State Park in Lake Mills, Wisconsin. It was the perfect spot to quick stretch our legs through this Wisconsin State Park. It’s crazy to think over 1,000 years ago this was a popular place for […]
