This is one heck of a weekend getaway!
It's our annual trip up to hike/kayak Devil's Lake and enjoy Wisconsin Dells.
We will have two days of hiking, kayaking Devil's Lake and Mirror Lake, great picture taking, taking in the Fall colors, visiting different sites, such as apple orchards, vineyards and breweries, and great places to eat.
What's different this year is that we will be staying at a new location. Unfortunately, Pine Dell Motel was sold to a big conglomerate, Mount Olympus. The family has resisted their high sale pitch for the last three years and they finally caved in. I don't blame them for selling the place, but now that good 'ole fashion family run motel is no longer there.
The motel where we will be staying is the Black Hawk Motel. Please see their site http://www.blackhawkmotel.com/modules/hotel/rooms.php to place your reservation.
Here is the itinerary:
Friday night Oct 11th, we will arrive at our newfound destination place, Black Hawk Motel.
Sat morning Oct 12th at 11:00 AM we will be at Devil's Lake south side. The cost is $10 to get in. For those who want to go kayaking, please go ahead. I believe the lake is a mile long. For those who want to go hiking with me, we will be taking the rough area. This is not for the faint of heart for there is climbing involved, and spectacular views. The hike will take around 4 hours. After the hike we could go to the apple orchard, and Wollersheim Vineyards. We will decide after this as to where we will go for dinner, but after dinner I will be going to the Dells newest micro craft brewery Port Huron. I will not be going on a tour of the place but to their taproom that will be open until 9:00 PM. After that, who knows-- for there are plenty of things to do. I know I will be going go karting.
Saturday October 12th is also a big day in Wisconsin Dells for it is their annual Chili cook-off!
Sun morning Oct 13th we will go to a Scandinavian place for Breakfast, Burr Oak Vineyard, and then to the north side of Devil's Lake to hike the less rougher side. This will take us about 2 hours to complete.

So come along and let's have an adventure!
