Sometimes Mother Nature puts on a better show than man can ever imagine.

Positively Hill Climbing

by Mauverneen

I was in Door County, WI for a relaxing weekend and as it so happens, there was an automotive event scheduled in Ephraim that same weekend. Listed as a combination Hill Climb and Concours, I was very interested in checking it out. I know what to expect at a concours, but wasn’t sure what to expect from a hill climb. The area has a strong Scandanavian heritage and Kurt Bakkelop is Norwegian for Short Hill Climb but since Door County is not noted for it’s hills I was particularly curious about that aspect of the event.
A bit of rain at check in time

A recent invitation to join a group of friends for a weekend at Turkey Run State Park in Indiana was just the ticket.
