Over the River and Through the Woods

We have had over two weeks of beautiful, unusually warm autumn days and nights, but the weatherman tells us it will soon come to an end.

Here are a few photos I took of the fall foliage in our neighborhood last week.  This weekend, we'll probably be raking up the leaves that are quickly falling from the trees.

Last weekend, we took advantage of the beautiful weather and hauled our kayaks and bicycles to the Giant's Ridge area near Biwabik, MN.

Bill checking to make sure everything is safely strapped down.

This is where we launch our boats at Wynne Lake.

Wide open spaces.

Still life along the shore.

Leaving Wynne Lake and entering the Embarrass River.

Plenty of turtles and beavers to keep us company.

Winding river.

I love this old bridge.

Nearing the end of the river.

Here comes my favorite part.

I can't carry a tune.........

but do you think you could paddle through this echo chamber without a little.......


From here we enter the Embarrass lake where we trade our kayaks for our bicycles.

Winding trail through the woods leads us to the Giant's Ridge ski area where we'll retrieve our car.

A beautiful ending to this year's kayaking season.

  7. Vicki,
    I'm so jealous! What a perfect way to spend the day! Fall is the Best! It's beautiful here in TN, finally fall weather after our 90 degree plus summer! I lived in Green Bay for 3 years and loved it up there on the lake, it was gorgeous especially Door County this time of year!
