Wisconsin Dells to Albert Lea

We got back on the road to Albert Lea, MN with a 2 day stop at a KOA. The destination marks state 2 of 4 on our list. We were assigned a new site that turned out to be a bit of a challenge The ground was very soft and wet and the top layer was a 2 inch layer of large, sharp stones.

Albert Lea turned out to be a relaxing location - a perfect mid-western town with all of the amenities that we needed after the sensory overload in Wisconsin Dells. Since we were enjoying the relaxation, we opted to stay until the 14th. We found Calico Hutch Quilts in a tiny town about 4 miles from our site that was amazing and the HyVee Grocery Store was superb.

On one of our forays took us by this pasture of several horses with foals. We stopped and Maureen wandered down to the fence and immediately the small herd wandered over to visit. It was an idyllic scene with the Maureen with the horses vying for attention. The owner actually drove to the pasture and spent 15 minutes talking proudly about his brood.

Wildlife refuge with a large flock and water fowl (egrets maybe) that was stunning.
