Lake Park, Iowa trip

Took a little bike trip to the Okoboji, Iowa area (Lake Park, IA).
Stayed on the back roads, exploring small towns in Northern
Iowa and Southern Minnesota.

A priest friend of mine owns this house on the lake. I really envy him!
The most beautiful location ever.

We were in the same High School and College class. I was in the
Seminary at the time. He ended up becoming a priest. I got married.

Just wandering around...no place I have to be....





Using my Sony RX100M4 camera. Great for travel and just as good as my Nikon DSLR.



County airport somewhere in northern Iowa




I used to work for CenturyLink phone company. We owned this little place in Chester, Iowa



Wow! Can't miss this building. Could see it standing out from the background miles away.

Father-Son Day trip

Took a nice long day-trip with my son today. He was riding his
classy looking Kawasaki W650. Nice looking and sounding
machine!

Rode up the river to a scenic overlook at Alma Wisconsin and
had breakfast at the Homemade Cafe in Pepin. Best breakfast
place I've ever been to!


Ready to fly

Beautiful sunrise as I was leaving town!



Gasing up the beasts.

Day trip

Beautiful day. Thought I'd get my hind end in shape and take
a nice long day trip today. Rode up the Mississippi River to
Wabasha, MN, the city where the movie "Grumpy Old Men"
takes place. Mostly it wasn't actually filmed there, but near by.
