Day 7: Chicago to Twin Cities (450 miles, 8 hours)

After stopping at a neighborhood Austrian bakery for a (fantastically yummy) poppy seed crown, we headed north and west towards Minnesota. Previously I have only traveled in rather flat areas of Wisconsin, so I was surprised and impressed by the beautiful rolling hills and pretty farmsteads on this route. The Mouse House Cheese Haus (and other roadside cheese curd merchants), also added a nice touch.

We arrived in St. Paul at a very reasonable hour and settled in for a nice visit with Ben's family at their cozy and beautiful home.
