Description

Aug 18-1925

After breakfasting in Juliet

started toward Wisconsin, a lovely

drive thru a lot of nice towns

had heard of. Roads fine and

splendid. Not far from Chicago

towns, Way up toward Madison

there was a detour and we had

trouble finding the right

road. Pretty nearly ran out of

road at one time, then had to

go back a few miles but

finally reached Madison, Wis.

Drove about the city a little,

stopping to visit a fine hotel

where dinner was found in

the basement. Learned the city

camp is in a city Park on

Lake- which we had

passed going in. It is a large

wooded park and has fine camping

facilities. In the sunset glow

on the water the dome of the

capitol was reflected from shore

to shore. The capitol is on a hill

and the streets radiate from it like

the spokes in a wheel.

Night of Aug 8 was spent here with

hundreds of other motorists.

State House in distance. View was taken in front of University building.
