Climbing Railroad Cars & Other Adventures in Wisconsin

My friends and I spent this Memorial Day weekend in the Madison-area, exploring the town of New Glarus (stopped at the New Glarus Brewery for a self-guided tour) and some new restaurants in Madison. We also made a detour at an abandoned railroad car somewhere outside Baraboo, Wisconsin. I was too chicken to get too close, but I caught some great images of my friends. Here are some of my favorite photos from one of the best weekends in Wisconsin.

What Else but an Emergency Wisconsin Kit?

My grandma is originally from Wisconsin, so when her 80th birthday rolled around, I took advantage of living in WI and crafted a quirky gift that would hopefully remind her of childhood in some small way.

I recycled a box, covered it carefully in wrapping paper, decorated it appropriately and filled it with the following:

Sausage links

Bucky cheese spread

Cheese curds (duh)

Blueberry bread from the local bakery

My hope is that when at Wisconsin craving hits, my grandma will be prepared!
