Although we really enjoyed getting to know Gino, the proprietor of the Bonne Belle motel in Kewaskum, it is time to move on. We are just moving one town south, which is either 6 miles by road, or 11 miles on the trail. Of course, we are taking the trail!
We started out on the Eisenbahn Trail, which is a Rails to Trails conversion. This means that it is straight and flat, as far as the eye can see.
It had rained overnight, and the sky was pretty spectacular.
Then we were back on the trail on our way to West Bend, walking through dappled sunlight and practically bug-free!
In what can only be described as Heaven for Hikers, the trail ended at the highway right in the middle of town, right in front of our hotel, with an Applebee’s and a grocery store right across the street. Now, into the hot tub we go!
