In stereotypical Wisconsin fashion, our family vacation this summer was a trip to Door County, sharing a house on the tip of the Door Peninsula with some amazing friends. We took the ferry to Washington Island, swam and snorkeled in Death’s Door, and shopped in Sister Bay. A favorite was the Dark Sky Park at Newport State Park, staring up in awe at the Milky Way, shooting stars, and satellites traversing overhead.
I was able to get in four bike rides, my first in Door County. The interior roads of the northern peninsula were not very inspiring, being mostly flat and either lined by young trees or fallow fields. On the plus side, traffic was light and the roads were in good shape.

Those bland backroads did lead to some nice bays and other beautiful places.
