Figment – 08-18-12 WY/Canada Trip – Woodbury, MN to Waukee, IA
First thing today, I got to step into Wisconsin for a little bit. We went across the St Croix River and it was really wide. Such a beautiful setting. There was a large marina in Hudson where we could see lots and lots of sail boats. In just a few miles it empties into the Mississippi River. I could spend some time here, but Mama Conni just wanted Mama Mary and me to see where she had taken Gully to get cleaned up. It was so pretty that she wanted to share and I’m glad she did.

A little later we backtracked back to I35 and crossed the Mississippi River. It took me a long time to learn how to spell that. Mama Conni had to keep correcting me. Anyway, I was really surprised to see that the Mississippi here was not as wide or pretty as the St Croix River.

Also, we crossed into Iowa today and I just thought I had seen corn fields before!! I mean mile after mile. I can see now how America also feeds other countries.
