Late afternoon hike at Cherokee Marsh
While hiking at Cherokee Marsh today, I came upon this deer with an eight-point set of antlers. Closest I’ve ever been to a buck like that.
I hiked through Lewis Nine Springs E-Way and above average temperatures today. With the warmth and the sunshine it felt like springtime in January. It sure has been a strange winter so far.
Hiking the North Trout Lake Nature Trail.
I spend last week camping in northern Wisconsin, where I made my annual summer pilgrimage to the Black Lagoon on the Star Lake Nature Trail. As I’ve said before, this is my favorite view in all of Wisconsin. The thought that entered my mind when I was there this time was, I’ll bet it looks just as amazing in the winter. Someday, I’ll have to see for myself.
A beautiful winter afternoon on Lake Mendota.
