Maple leaf sunrise

We didn’t see many bright red maples this year. An early fall with cold windy weather cut our leaf viewing short with only a few here and there to admire and appreciate.

I walk the line

Every now and then it’s good to get off the pavement and find a good fence line. You’ll be amazed at how much you’ll spot…that’s why I walk the line.

C'mon walk the line

Wheel in the sky

Sometimes you have to get off your bike to admire the wheel in the sky as it keeps on turnin’.

Happy trails

You know it’s a good day when the trail options keep coming on a colorful fall afternoon in northwest Wisconsin. The After Hours Ski Trail takes you into the Brule River State Forest and along the banks of the famous Bois Brule River.

Too many good choices
