Early AM walkabout in Cornucopia. Power had gone out just after 5AM and I had planned on getting up for some sunrise photos. This now available convenience store's closing made gasoline impossible to find in Corny.
“Wisconsin's Most Northern Village” now painted over?? Who's the challenger?
It looked like a whale, still does.

Early AM fog on the Corny beach
Closed due to power failure, a very huge problem for me since I was in need of coffee. I think they were finally opening as I was heading home.
Where Gramp lived.
We've played softball games here, this season the field is almost under water. The school yard is right across the road from the house that Peg's dad grew up in. One day his pet pig escaped and entered the school grounds to visit its Master.
Corny school freshened up in 2006. My father-in-law and his sisters all attended school in this building. It is now the Community Center. Townsfolk have a lot to be proud of here.
Where we used to spend lots of time in the warmish-cool water.

My faithful little pony. Lake Superior, Sunday morning bright and clear (cold for August). Heading south towards home, using county roads and no gravel. Just over 310 miles on the official TWT ride, 720 miles on the Tdub for the weekend by the time I got home Sunday afternoon.
I rode past some fields recently harvested, sure that I smelled vegetables but quite sure that it was late for peas. These green beans must have fallen off the trucks while hauling. Taken in the Rice Lake area, county roads and WI 25 to Nelson, WI and home.
