River Bluff Trail -- St. Croix Falls, 0.7 mile loop -- With the lower portion of the Dalles of the St. Croix River gorge on one side and Lake O' The Dalles on the other, this trail offers delightful scenes at every turn. Vegetation on the rocky gorge is relatively sparse, with ferns, mosses and lichens prominent, along with cedar, pine, oak and basswood trees.

Osceola & St. Croix Valley Railway -- Osceola, WI -- This is a beautiful ride in the fall if you take the trip from Osceola to Marine on St. Croix. A shorter trip goes between Osceola and Dresser. The hosts are wonderful and are all volunteer led. It's a great scenic little trip through woods, water areas and more. The ride is filled with variety as you can get up and move about and explore the train.
Standard breakfast at a cafe in Paris! Sweet patisseries, an egg (they love their eggs and almost daily!), fruit, coffee (un cafe!), fresh squeezed orange juice and maybe toast with 'butter' and maybe preserves....I haven't seen anyone drink champagne (without orange juice) here in Paris, but that doesn't mean it hasn't happened!
