First marker trip of 2014! Woo hoo!!!

Somewhere on a country road in Kewaunee County . . .

It's a gorgeous day (March 16, 2014) in Northeastern Wisconsin! The sun is shining, the air is crisp and clean, the sky is nearly cloudless and crystal blue, the snow has mostly retreated (i.e., pretty much no ice on the roads or walkways), and the temps are hovering around 20 degrees! It's the perfect day for the first marker trip of the year. 

I rounded up Dexter, who could hardly contain himself he was so excited (because of our winter of sub-zero temps, I haven't been able to take him in the car with me since early-December). With a route mapped out, camera lenses dusted off, and the GPS brought out of storage, we headed off to Kewaunee County to collect the rest of the markers on the Kewaunee County Historical Society Driving Tour.

We left at 11:30 a.m., and returned home about 4:00 p.m. It took nearly another four hours to get everything up online.

We drove 99.5 miles, mostly on country rounds.

We had to fill up; gas was $3.63 a gallon (up more than 50 cents from only about a month ago!)

We visited eight marker locations; we were unable to locate two markers.

I took loads of photos; I hope you enjoy them!

I'm not sure it's possible to take a bad picture
of the Kewaunee Pierhead Lighthouse!
BTW, that's ice still covering Lake Michigan . . .
