Camping, biking, adventure filled weekend!

On Friday the pack gathered up our stuff and we headed south west to camp at one of our favorite places, Namekagon Campground, east of Cable WI. The 2 leggeds wanted to relax and bike; that was ok but I also wanted to explore the woods and hunt! We all had a great time.
We set up camp Friday afternoon.

The pack hiked here while I scoped out the wild game.
Out for more adventure...

On Saturday, we slept in since it was chilly out for the 2-leggeds. I thought it was finally a temp I could appreciate! After breakfast we headed to the OO Trail head so we could check out a new trail. For those who are familiar with the CAMBA trails, this summer the crews there put in about 6 more miles of single track as a continuation of the Fish Hatchery and Makwa trails. The newly named "Seeley Pass" will eventually connect with the old Ojibwa trail near Telemark Lodge. This will give bikers and trail dogs a single track route all the way from Hayward to Cable.

This was a long climb (for the Chequamegon).

After our out-and-back on the fantastic, flowing, fun Seeley Pass trail we took a break and then continued down the Makwa for a short way.

We had a great ride! Afterwards, the pack dallied at their favorite Brick House Coffee shop eating lunch, then finally we headed back to camp, where I had more hunting adventures:
I can smell vermin in there!

He is taunting me......

The pack whipped up a nice little camp supper while I guarded the perimeter. We had a great evening, which the pack found to be very pleasant and not as chilly.
The next morning, the pack enjoyed another clear calm and this time cool (not cold) camp breakfast while I again terrorized the local chipmunks and squirrels. Then we headed down to ride the Namekagon single track, just a few miles south of camp. We even scared up some venison!

We had many great adventures this weekend...and we're looking forward to more very soon!
