Lost and Found

After rambling around Sauk County in the rain for hours last Saturday I didn't take the turn that would have lead me to this lonely little upright in Ableman's Gorge. I later found out my car has a bad water pump so driving back as planned was not an option until...
My cousin took pity on me and we visited Map Stop #36 on the Farm/Art DTour yesterday.
There I discovered that 36 is the loneliest number.



Red Piano in Ableman's Gorge



Lying down on the stage with the excuse of taking this shot



"Morning, noon and night it's drink and dancing."


Three different people hoped up on stage and played for us while I rested my aging carcass.
I kept expecting Lili Von Shtupp to tell me to get my feet off the stage.

  1. Sometimes off the road sights turn out the most interesting.

    1. This is part of a nine day long festival tour, LV. It was a short hike but a little tricky with the gravel on an incline. Very worthwhile for sure.

    1. Yup, Rhonda, #36 on the Fermentations Fest's Farm/Art DTour. It was fun to watch people sit down and play it when they came up the trail.

  3. Hi! You asked about the Sunflowers and I live in Georgia which is still really warm at this time of year. The farmer planted these late to go along with the pumpkin picking season, so he could piggy back on the crowds.

  4. Ah, well I guess that makes sense. It was in the 70s here in WI the last few days so we've still got some pretty flowers here and there. He planned it that way, very savvy.

  5. Now let me ask...if the piano makes a sound out there and no one hears it, did it make a sound? Just asking. What an idea. Thanks for sharing this lonely piano and get that water pump fixed. Are there more numbers to share?

    1. I think the first thing I ever saw on this tour was when I turned a corner and saw a giant shoe.

    1. That's quartzite and sandstone which you see a lot of around here and I never get tired of it. Please keep us updated on Matthew.

    1. Thanks, Pea bea and yes, I'll check it out. Although my high school scriptures class was one of the toughest I've ever taken and I just scraped through. Am a bit of a lapsed Catholic in my old age I'm afraid.

  12. What a great idea for a piece of art. I love the vibrant red against the more neutral surrounding and the idea that anyone can play, well that is just lovely

    1. Thanks, that's the perspective of someone so out of shape they needed to like down on the stage.

  17. I'm glad you provided a link, Arv, I find those Google pages a little challenging sometimes. Nice shot from a moving car, not easy to do.

  18. Those red chairs are amazing! And you know how to have fun, even if you have to lie down on the stage to do it!
