We had a nice visit to the communities of Oelwein and Hazelton, IA. We toured a really neat little railroad museum from the "Great Western" era. Pica of that particular train and station attached. Next was the Fontana Park and Nature Center which had many types of injured animal now calling this place home (hair-lip looking raccoon - his nose was bit off and is now called "No Nose"; a domesticated brown bear who was declawed as a baby; eagle and other fowl missing parts of wings; etc). Attached is pic of eagle. Near the nature center was Otter Creek d amn. Attached are pics of d amn and one near Lake Oelwein where we camped.

Thanks for all the comments/replies folks! The trip is actually great so far. We made it to Milwaukee and will post pics later. Busy playing cards for next few days with my soon to be 100 yr old aunt! We did get to spend the day yesterday at the state fair which was fun.

Looks like your having a Great Trip. I did notice that you seam to dodge the camera lens LOL. Well the weather is a little cooler for you enjoy your time in Cheese Land.

If your up by Rhinlander Wis. Look for the Worlds Largest 6 Pack at the Old Style Brewrey. Please tell them I miss them !!!

Hey, if you are in Milwaukee you don't want to miss the Harley Davidson Museum on Canal Street. Here is a link: http://www.harley-davidson.com/wcm/C...p?locale=en_US

All this talk about Milwaukee... man some cheese curds sound good! The Harley Davidson museum is a great suggestion Sam. There used to be a Briggs and Straton facility that you could tour also... if your in to small engines that is.

We are out of heat-wave/advisory territory for sure! Weird, it hasn't been very humid so far.

I looked up Rhinlander and it looks like it is just a little bit off the route we would be taking up to Mackinac Island. May consider it, thanks Wayne

Not sure about the engines, but a cheese tour would be kewl. We decided though to go to the distillery to see how whiskey is made! Hmmm, wonder if they give samples

Don went there with my cousin a couple of summer's ago (I was too busy playing cards and losing nickels to my near centenarian auntie) . They enjoyed it. Brought me back a cool poker looking chip.
