This is a delightful little orchard-they had freshly baked apple treats and even a winery! The best part? You could pick your own apples. So of course we had to.
The woman who worked there, who brought us to our spot in the orchard, was so friendly. We chatted as we walked down the dirt path, and she told me of getting stung by wasps, and about her family. As she left us, she gave me a big hug and thanked us for stopping by. See why I love Wisconsin?
After stocking up on apples and cider and cheese curds, it was back on the road.
Our day brought us through Pepin, Nelson, and Alma, with winding county roads bringing us to Mondovi, where we stopped at the local hardware store to browse, and had homemade malts at a little cafe. It was perfect in every way, and when we parked in front of our house our truck was full of autumn treats and warm memories.
