Mr. and Mrs. Don Stewart of Verona came after her parents October 6, driving down through the cranberry marshes south of City Point to Camp Douglas and Mauston on state and county roads, through the hills to Highway 14 and 18. It was a beautiful colorama all the way to and around Highway 14; there the color was just beginning to change. The colorful trees were just at their right stage to be beautiful. The Stewarts drove Saturday through Door County and trees were at their beauty peak there, also.
