Predator Round-Up, Sea Cave Mayhem, Playing Hookie and an Unwarranted Pity Party

Newsflash: Last week I had an unwarranted pity party. It started during my 5-hour drive home from the UP after a weekend of bonding with women at a 3-day Becoming an Outdoor Woman camp (more on that experience in a different post). I left the camp recharged and excited about life. But then, I had…… Continue reading Predator Round-Up, Sea Cave Mayhem, Playing Hookie and an Unwarranted Pity Party

(Yes, I may in fact slip a mention of baby from here on forward). In early March I retired my running shoes for walking shoes. At…… Continue reading Ice Melt in Bayfield County

Spring Thaw – Lost Creek Falls
