Leaving Spring Green just about to head north.
Rode up Mile Bluff in Mauston.
Since is was in the area I snapped a picture of Elroy Gas Company (a subsidiary of Madison Gas & Electric).
The summer of 1997 as an occasional seasonal worker at Walker Stainless, I spent weeks painting these two cranes bright safety yellow. Now they are barely yellow and sitting in a pile of weeds.
We came to Wisconsin when I was 9 because my mom got a job as a religious coordinator for this church in the picture (St Patrick's in Elroy, WI) part of the job was that we got to stay in the rectory next to the church. I wanted to stop by and see the house and found out it had been torn down. As was the elementary school a little further up the hill from here.
Now it's just a hole in the ground.
Highest point in Elroy.
I like haystacks!
