Kelly Iniguez commented on Day Thirty-seven: Sparta, Wisconsin to West Baraboo, Wisconsin

I know that counting down feeling. I'm glad you are at a nice place overnight. That always improves my mood.

Snapping turtle. Females emerge from water during spring/summer and roam about looking for a good spot to lay eggs.

I'm of two minds about bike trails. It's nice to be completely away from traffic, but I do tire of the "tunnel of trees" and, if it is crowded with inexperienced cycled riding two or three abreast, then it is hard to make good time.

You are getting pretty darn close to Manitowoc.

The Root River Trail is really nice but, unfortunately, you picked the most touristy place on the entire route. Make sure you read about the Standstill Parade in Whalen, the town right next door. And get some pie if the store is open.

I agree, and I should do it more often. The reason I often don't is that I forget to ask, or I feel like it's maybe an imposition to ask someone if I can take their picture.

I like it when you put a face with the people you mention in your blog. People are often just as interesting as places...
