My wife and I along with a couple friends did a day trip up north to check the fall colors. I'd say we hit it perfect. We left at 6:20 am this morning and got back around 5:30pm this evening. Was 49 degress when we left and was 82 degrees on the way home. We went west to Stevens Point, then north to Merrill, took 17 north to Eagle River, east on 70 to 139, south to Cavour, west on 8 to Crandon then south on W, then home. Round trip was 462 miles. Colors were perfect and very little traffic. Gorgeous sights and the awesome smell of fall, the pipes and some tunes, a couple friends, my wife, multiple beers afterwords in the garage, what a great day.
