We packed up and headed out in the fiver for Perrot State Park in Trempealeau, Wisconsin on the Mississippi River last Thursday. We had just missed their annual Catfish Days celebration, but we enjoyed our time here so much that maybe we'll make plans to return for it another year! Most likely though, I'd want to come back during another season. We had to get up early every morning to beat the heat and get our physical activity done for the day.

We got most of the way up in time for this gorgeous shot above, but by the time we got all the way to the top the sun had sunk behind some clouds. (Of course in reality it was not quite this orange to the human eye...but still!) That little ribbon curving around the mountain is the path we took in our kayak around Trempealeau Mountain. Oh, and while we were cooling off and admiring the view we got serenaded by cicadas, which was something I don't remember hearing for awhile. I'm not usually one for views from peaks...but Perrot State Park has a winner, in my opinion!
