Saturday, Oct. 8th was our cruise to Elmer's Auto and Toy Museum, in Fountain City, WI. Nine cars and 20+ people made the trip on a gorgeous 70⁰ day. The fall leaf colors were not yet at their peak, but the bright blue sky still made for great scenery.


We stopped in Fountain City for lunch before heading up the hill to Elmer's Museum atop Eagle Bluff, which is the highest point (550 feet) on the whole length of the Mississippi River. The museum would not allow us to photograph inside the five barns full of toys and cars, so you will have to visit to see some of the remarkable vehicles there.
