Wisconsin’s “Up North”

Our traveling has been somewhat limited this year but we did manage to go for a 3 day trip ‘up north’. Those of you in WI know just what that means J  We drove through some great little towns since we took the back roads. On the way up we stopped at the Horicon Marsh  to check out this guy!!  All made of rebar.Mammoth

We wound our way on to Wautoma to see this Ghost House!!  DSC02198

Our friends in Wausau have a lovely old farm with a barn that just lends itself beautifully to photography don’t you think?  DSC02234

Wausau’s Monk Gardens are a work in progress and offer a lovely series of meditational pathways along with some geocaching. DSC02247


On our way back home we visited the StevensPoint Sculpturepark  .  How nice to be able to enjoy nature and art while you walk!  One of my favorites was this Swift Nesting Chimney. DSC02274

Golden Days of Fall…….

It was the perfect morning for geocaching. Warm in the sun, sparkling blue sky and vibrant orange and yellow leaves falling all around us.  Today our goal was to find 2 more caches in the park; one of them is the first ever placed in Wisconsin. And we did succeed – a stellar geocaching day!  On a little side trail we found a 2-seater swing just perfect for looking out over a hidden pond.IMG_2338

Best Intentions

It has been pointed out to me that I have not updated in months!! True true and it has been a hard winter and tough to get motivated.  But Spring might actually be coming so it’s time to get a MOVE ON. The other night I noticed this odd leaf thing above a doorway. Reaching up to brush it off it seemed like it spun away – kind of like those maple leaf seed spinners you know? About an hour later it reappeared as this!!  On our soap pump by the kitchen sink…… what an amazing little moth
