Road Trip – Day 1

As part of our family Road Trip 2015 out “West”, we were able to fit in some nice stops to stretch our legs!  All of the garden shots here were taken at the Riverside International Friendship Gardens in La Crosse, WI (  The garden was beautiful and while I enjoyed seeing it over eight years ago, the gardens had expanded and it was nice to see the progress.  If you are ever in La Crosse, make the stop!  After about 8 hours of driving, we stopped by the Corn Palace in Mitchell, SD which was quite interesting!
