Fly the Cranberry Highway? No? Maybe?

So Deb got stuck on the idea to photograph cranberry bogs from the air. Wouldn't it look cool? We reserved the Arrow and hoped the weather would cooperate on the one day this fall we are available to go. Yeah, been a little busy. During flight planning tonight, we notice the Volk MOAs. Restricted airspace everywhere. Everywhere over the cranberry bogs!

We'll land at KISW tomorrow and ask their recommendations. We wanted to photograph fall color, so there are still aerial sights. Maybe our cranberry photos will be ground view, like The Cranberry Guy's.

Wisconsin's cranberries are known nationwide:

Trip planning:
Glacial Lake Cranberries -- check out The Stone Cottage to stay in. How cute is that!

By ground, the Cranberry Highway is a 50-mile trail from Wisconsin Rapids to Warrens and Pittsville. Best time is late September to late October during harvest, when bogs are flooded. Plus fall colors are at peak.

Even if you can't fly over the bogs, flying to Wisconsin Rapids makes a fast trip up there, so you have more time on the ground, seeing cranberries, picking cranberries, eating cranberry foods.
