exploring our amazing natural spaces

From NW Wisconsin

Our smaller red pines are no match for the power of a Pileated Woodpecker, the largest woodpecker in North America. I just hope he found what he was looking for…must have been a monster grub!

Laetiporus aka the chicken of the woods mushroom can be several pounds in size. Cooked up many think it tastes like chicken. I’ll try some tonight on the grill and let you know. UPDATE: grilled nicely very tasty!

The Middle river is a beautiful little cola colored trout stream meandering through the pines en route to Lake Superior near Poplar Wisconsin.
