For the last week, I have been working out in the garage. It is a two fold project; one being -- I am taking all the photos from my parents and my grandparents, attempting to make them digital. That alone is quite an undertaking. I have boxes and boxes of photos.
Secondly, we are in what we call "phase 2" of our move making the cottage our permanent residence. Two years ago we had a rummage sale getting rid of all our duplicates, now we are getting rid of all the things we don't want or need. The sale is slated for the 4th. That weekend brings lots of visitors to our area.
I needed to take a break, and it being such a pleasant day, I mounted my steady steed, (ATV) and grabbed 'Mr. Canon', and away we went.
My first encounter was a field of wild daisies.
Once I crossed the creek, I was greeted by this sign:
The only thing I took was a picture of the Lupines growing in the ditch line:
Traveling in another direction I found this neglected dwelling: I don't know if it was a shack used for making maple syrup, or if it may have been a warming shelter for deer hunters. Maybe its intent was to be the 'inlaws' suite!!!
When I see signs like this, I chuckle to think that city folks want to come to the northwoods to get away from it all. Then they post a sign for those that they are probably trying to get away from to find them for a visit!!!!
Pickerel Creek, winds throughout our township, and finally flows into the Wolf River.
I decided to take a little used trail to get back home!!!
And that's the way it is.........................
