U.S. 12 Adventure, Day 2

“For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.” — Robert Louis Stevenson

On a long trip there will days that really boil down to just getting there. Today was such a day, when just getting to Ortonville, MN was the goal. A big chunk of time was spend on I-94 getting from Madison, WI through Minneapolis and St. Paul, MN and then connecting back on U.S. 12 to get the rest of the way across MN. July 3 will take us partly across South Dakota to Mobridge, SD and the beginning of exploring off the beaten path adventures in earnest. It was a wonderful day though with nothing but blue skies the whole day and followed by a picnic and relaxing on Big Stone Lake at sunset.
