    Another Hike

    October 3, 2018 in the United States ⋅ 🌬 28 °C

    We went on a short hike at nearby Matheson State Park. The falls and creek were dry so the park was unremarkable. The most exciting event was Nancy sliding downhill towards the cliff edge as she tried to retrieve the water bottle that she had dropped. Unfortunately her arm got pretty scraped up by hanging onto a tree. We then went on a walking tour of the historic town of Ottawa that had several wall murals. The temperature went up to 32 and it was just too hot and humid for more walking.Read more

    Holiday Inn Vacation Club, Sheridan, Il

    September 29, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 13 °C

    Although Googlemaps indicated our trip travel time would be around 13 hours it actually took us almost 20 hours spread over 2 days. The drive through Minneapolis was 1 1/2 hours due to major construction and rush hour traffic. Our first night was spent at the Hampton Inn in Chippewa Falls, which was a good choice. Since our timeshare resort was in a country setting we stopped beforehand to load up on groceries and wine for the week. When we left Winnipeg the temperature was 4 degrees but was a more tolerable 12 degrees on our arrival in Illinois. Our 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom unit is spacious and comfortable as a base for our one week stay.Read more

    Exploring the Neighbourhood

    September 30, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 19 °C

    It was sunny and a pleasant 18 degrees. After a lazy recovery morning we headed to Starved Rock State Park, a 45 minute drive. On our way we stopped by accident at the Illinois Waterways Museum and canal/locks system that allows large barges to travel from Lake Michigan to the Mississippi River. At the state park there are 17 canyons and 30 km of hiking trails, most with many metal-clad steps leading to the canyons. Our 2 km trail included 110 steps and that was enough for one day! We visited the lodge on site where they were having a wood carving exhibition and sale. The grounds were nicely decorated for the Fall season.Read more

    I & M Canal

    November 3, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 4 °C

    Noch ein Kanal! Heute folge ich dem Illinois and Michigan Canal auf dem alten Treidelpfad für die Maultiere. Dieser Kanal ist nicht so gut erhalten, an vielen Stellen führt er kein Wasser mehr. Der Weg ist schlechter, an vielen Stellen rutschig und schlammig. Ich bin ganz bekleckert. Dafür ist das Wetter wieder gut, sonnig und beinahe warm.
    Unterwegs kommt mir ein junger Chinamann entgegen. Er ist mit seinem Rad auf dem Weg von New York nach Los Angeles.
    In Morris beziehe ich das letzte freie Motelzimmer der Stadt.

    Matthiessen State Park

    October 15, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 70 °F

    I headed to this park that was about 3 miles away and hiked these paths for a while. I didn't have a posse anymore, but it was an interesting park and I'm sure even more beautiful when they have water.

    Wooden sculptures

    October 15, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 70 °F

    We got to the Starved Rock resort and they had great big wood carved sculptures. Really cool stuff. We even passed by a wedding taking place outside. I posted the best picture I could get of the bride on instagram. We were stopped from peeking in on the wedding itself.

    Starved Rock State Park

    October 15, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 66 °F

    I got to the park and met this family from Minnesota that I ended up hiking the trails with. We didn't go at a fast rate, but it was really fun to be able to talk the whole time and they even offered to host me if they were around when I got into the area.

    Illinois river

    October 14, 2015 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 61 °F

    I met up with Anton, my host, and he showed me around the very small town and then took me to a park to show me a place he likes to go and relax to look at the water. After that we went to the local bar that he goes to that is 45 minutes away from his house. The strangest thing there that the bartender couldn't answer was that the wooden beams near the ceiling were covered with brad.Read more
