We couldn’t have asked for better weather for our wedding weekend…and for our whole honeymoon in general! You never know what to expect for a Midwestern summer — will it be hot and humid? Cold and rainy? Severe thunderstorms or tornadoes? We totally lucked out with highs in the 70’s, the perfect cloud cover for pictures in shadeless areas, and pleasant temperatures throughout our whole trip for short hikes and visiting attractions.
We made one more stop in Rochester, MN to find some letterbox series, but couldn’t figure out the clues and decided to push on to our hotel before dark. We spent our first night in St. Paul, MN in a hotel right on the Mississippi River.
We drove home that Saturday and Sunday, driving along the South shore of Lake Eerie, completing our tour of the Great Lakes. We found a letterbox series near Erie, PA featuring great carves of famous people from Pennsylvania. After driving through Cleveland, we opted for backroads and spent our last night of our honeymoon in Napoleon, Ohio. Throughout this trip, we put over 3000 miles on our faithful truck, Yeti! (Well, sometimes faithful…there were a few overheating incidents along the way, usually while in heavy traffic or at border crossings, but thankfully we made it through that safely!)
*Attention fellow Letterboxers* We have a traveler, Happy Honeymooners, that asks a question about our honeymoon. This post should help you figure it out. Be sure to try to answer the question if you ever meet us on the trails or at an event!
