Little House in the Big Woods

"Once upon a time a little girl lived in the Big Woods of Wisconsin in a little gray house made of logs."  That is the beginning of the Little House series of books by Laura Ingalls Wilder.  Yesterday we took a road trip and unexpectedly found the original home site of the Wilder family in the Big Woods.   We drove along the St. Croix River that separates Minnesota from Wisconsin on the Wisconsin side.

Near Pepin, we found the home site of the Ingalls.

This is a re-creation, I'm sure, but it was fun to imagine what life there must have been like many years ago.

On the way home, we traveled along the Mississippi River in Minnesota.  It was a beautiful sunny day and everything glistened with the snow.


  1. HOw fun! Yes, it would be a feast for the imagination to spend some time there and even experience some of the activities.

  2. But how do we REALLY know who wrote that last post? I mean, could you prove it in a court of law? As a father of seven I would suggest you keep an eye out behind you and don't sleep!
