22-Jun-2007 -- Alpine Village is a small community next to Lake Ripley a little to the east of Madison. The houses are wooden and many are Swiss in character. The lake provides a pretty setting for this settlement. We approached the point from the south but quickly realized that it would be better to walk round the road and approach from the north east. As with point N43 W88 earlier this was a very easy visit although tree cover made the GPS reluctant to line up all the zeroes. In any case the point did not seem to be on top of a garage as suggested in the first visit. OK been there - done that – time to go kayaking down the river!.
