Day 3 - LaCrosse to Prairie Du Chien 5-24-2011 64 miles

We woke up at 4:30 this morning and was on the road by 5:00 to head out of LaCrosse.  We were told that the morning rush hour is from 6:00 to 9:00AM and we wanted to be out of the area before the rush hour started. So we put all our bike lights on and headed out of town and bicycled to Genoa and stopped at a little restaurant/tavern for an incredible breakfast.  All four of us ordered the 3 egg scrambled mess omelet.  Oh my, was it huge and was it delicious.  John and Dennis were able to eat all of theirs but Deb and I left parts of our omelet behind.  It was so good but what we should have done was ordered 1 scrambled mess omelet for the two of us and shared it instead of ordering two of them. After breakfast we continued on to Prairie Du Chien where we checked into the Microtel hotel. Today's bike ride was all along the Mississippi River with beautiful views of the river and bluffs.  We were biking on highway 35 which made biking a little uncomfortable in spots due to traffic and also narrow and poorly maintained shoulders.

 Deb & Dennis's daughter, Jill, will be picking them up around 4:00PM today as they have to go back to work tomorrow. We have had a wonderful time with them and wish they could continue on with us but unfortunately they are not retired yet.  John and I both really enjoyed our time with the two of you and we will miss you but we are looking forward to continuing on our journey east!

Leaving our hotel in Lacrosse at 5:00AM on Tuesday morning!

Beautiful Mississippi River
It's great to be back on the road again!

Life is good!
