Because Park Rapids, MN is a 14-15 hour trip from Grand Rapids we decided to take small detour and stay in Wausau, WI for a few nights to see my aunt and uncle and cousins that live in the area. While there, we made an afternoon trip to the Dells of the Eau Claire and later in the day took a pontoon ride down the Wisconsin River. We had a great time--thanks so much Doug and Joanne and family!
Enjoying the relaxing sound of running water...
Looking for frogs and other animals.

Are we safe?!?
The river looking so pretty at dusk.
A beautiful hot air balloon in a perfectly clear sky.
