What wonders await you, deep in the forest?
As I hiked along the trail, I heard a loud, scolding “chit-chit… chi-chit” in the tree above. How rude of me to interrupt this little guy’s lunch! Sorry, buddy. Just a few snaps, and I’ll let you eat in peace.View more →
Fallison Lake Trail near Sayner, Wisconsin.
I spent last week on a camping vacation in northern Wisconsin. Wish I could’ve brought some of the fresh, pine scented air back home with me.View more →
I took a camping vacation last week in Northern Wisconsin, where I had to visit my favorite spot in the whole state: The Black Lagoon on the Star Lake Nature Trail [PDF]. I must have hiked that trail and visited that spot at least a couple dozen times, but every time I see it, I am just as amazed as I was the first.View more →
It was a warm morning when I hiked up the trail to the top of Brady’s Bluff (the highest point in Perrot State Park).View more →
While out on a hike, I noticed a feather on the trail and picked it up. From some kind of sparrow maybe?
As I walked along the trail carrying the feather, I pondered how much of its existence was spent flying through the air. When I got to the trail’s observation tower, I thought it would be appropriate to put the feather back in the sky where it belonged (well, as high as I could place it). So I left it perched on the railing of the tower.
