Day Trippin'

During our glorious day of toddler-free gallivanting, my husband and I drove the Great River Road route from St. Paul to Wabasha, stopping in Red Wing and hiking in Frontenac State Park. We crossed the river at Wabasha and ate a wonderful lunch at the acclaimed Harbor View Cafe in Pepin, WI, where we learned that Lake Pepin makes up 22-miles of the Mississippi River. Off-season, we had little competition for seats! Although we had to speed through the rest of our drive, I found that of all the places we cruised, Stockholm, WI was by far and away the most charming. Not bad for a town of 97 people!
