The other day we were on our way to Iowa and decided to make a stop along the way. Actually, we had several stops planned but we didn't make it to all of them. I'll explain why in just a minute. Anyway, the first stop was at the Falk Wells Sugar River Wildlife Area, just outside Paoli, Wisconsin. This looks like a newer wildlife area the county is working on. It is hard to visualize it as much of a wildlife area because its so surrounded by agriculture land, residences, and a business or two. But the county is working on it. Maybe its a restoration project. At any rate, one little portion of it is accessible and pretty nice. I figure its new and in development because as I was checking it out in advance I noticed the "street view" and the satellite view were different. One showed a parking area, the other did not.
By the time we'd finished eating and went back outside it was getting pretty dark. Our side trip was in the hopes of seeing some more of the fall colors but it was already too dark to see anything more so we decided to cut it short and beat it on to Iowa. I guess we should have known there wouldn't be much time for sight-seeing because the days are getting so much shorter. We'll have to save the rest of the trip for another time. So instead of traveling a winding trip west across the bottom of the state we cut back up to the highway and hurried on. Still, it was a nice trip and we enjoyed it.
