Wegener Family

Wisconsin + Mackinac Bridge

It’s really exciting that we have finally completed the state of Wisconsin. Every year, our two daughters Kerry and Amanda take one week off work to hike the North Country Trail with us. We completed the state of Michigan years ago and have been working on both the states of Ohio and Wisconsin.

We hiked the first week of October. Luckily, the weather was great. We finished Wisconsin on a Thursday, about noon, and headed back home. We weren’t in the car a half hour when it started raining, and it rained the whole way home. The weather was perfect while we hiked – chilly but no rain – and the autumn leaf colors were spectacular. Each year we look forward to the week we spend hiking with our daughters. We all have a great time!
