"Up North" generally refers to the top third of the state, everything north of Highway 29, which runs from Green Bay west through Eau Claire and on to the Mississippi. I love, love, love being up here -- especially when I am with my wonderful friends.
My friend Lisa rented us a lovely four-bedroom cabin in the Minoqua area. Ironically, there is at least as much snow in Madison (four hours south of here) than there is around Minoqua, but we haven't let that slow us down. Three of us are avid cross country skiiers, and we've been out every morning. Sometimes there is activity in the afternoon, too, but sometimes there is reading, talking -- and knitting, of course. It is so relaxing that I'm dreading going back to the real world on Monday!
