Back in the great outdoors

Last week I was camping in the Northern Highland American Legion State Forest, one of my favorite places to experience the outdoors.

It was the first time I’ve been camping since last August. Because of my home situation over the past 6 months (moving, fixing up the house I bought) most of my vacation time has been spent doing those things.

Finally camping after a year’s hiatus only reinforced how important is is for me to get to the outdoors on a regular basis.

There is nothing like laying in your sleeping bag and hearing loons call at night, or biking/hiking through beautiful woods and lake shores. The experience of those kind of things are definitely food for my soul.

  1. Great spot to spend the week. In order posted, photo number 5 is my favorite – the hiking path invites one to step into the picture and take a walk around the lake – but all your photos show the beauty of being in the north woods country of wonderful Wisconsin. Thanks for giving us a glimpse of what you experienced.

  2. Great photos of your trip,Jon. Thanks for the Birthday card and raspberry Jam. I am going to make a Linzer Torte with the raspberry jam. It is yummy! Ever have it? I think it is a German pastry. With a crust with almonds in it and filled with raspberry preserves.

  3. Judging from the great photos looks like you had a nice trip.
    Makes me want to pack up some camping gear and head north.
    It’s nice you got to get away for a bit,thanks for sharing the

  4. Lovely to see photos of your Mum and Dad and family as I was browsing The Net. Do you remember us when we came to see you in Milwaukee 1980. If possible give our love to Dad
    God Bless Eri
