We got rain and rain overnight, NOAA said about an inch.
|Those two were bummed they couldn't ride but|
I knew darn well we could go for a hike.
|Just down the road the North Country Trail crossed highway D.|
A very friendly FS employee was here and we chatted with him.
|We'd never been on this section before.|
A few miles in was a tower we'd hike in to see.
|This is an old fire tower on top of a rocky ridge.|
|We got a kick out of this marking. |
This is near Grand View WI.
|It wasn't much of a view, but|
a nice spot to hike to just the same.
|Coming down the ridge, we spied some pretty flowers.|
|It was HOT out today.|
|We found quite a few trees across the trail.|
Maybe more than a dozen in the 2 miles we did to the tower.
|We're not sure what these white blazes mean.|
|Oh good, a cool creek we passed by.|
|Back to camp, Sandy's working on the KNSC news letter.|
|Meanwhile, I stayed busy chasing this chipmunk.|
|This is looking up the same tree.|
He did come down and I chased him!
|Tonight they made grilled vegetables with sausages.|
|Hummmmm that looked good.|
|And guess what happened the next morning? It rained again!|
So we went to a coffee shop in Cable WI.
Oh ya, there was a bunch of friendly customers who'd stop by
and scratch my ears. No-one ever does that!
|This is our favorite coffee shop in Cable - The Brick House.|
|We spied a robin on top of a sign while there.|
No, we didn't get to run that much, but still had a nice time here.
