3 posts in this topic

It sure is hot out but one can sure see the "signs" of the next season.....the goldenrods are flourishing...the grasses along the highways are turning brown....some foliage and ferns are turning yellow/brown....certain species of dragonflies make themselves known in late summer and early fall....yes I even saw some early red fall maple leaves (by Skibo hwy #16)....I welcome the seasonal changes...great for those photos! grin

birds have been stuffing themselves on this chokecherry bush....


another sign that fall, is close.the asters....this one is the "New England" variety


a leopard frog(usually see these in abundance on the trails in late summer, early fall)...this one's trying to "dig in" to avoid me grin


and another dragonfly that appears in late summer, early fall...

Ah man.... fall is my favorite season of the year.

Although we usually make the annual fall trip to Basswood Lake, this year I will miss it due to my first little one on the way.... bitter sweet for sure.

However, I do plan to pull the camper out along the Mississippi for a week and half long trip. With my gal at 7 months, we just don't want to be too far from expert medical help should the need arise.

Thanks for posting your 'teaser' to the fall season. Your images are always are treat to view.

    • On June 30 I sent the dnr an email this is their response, "Hello Rob,
      The hunting regs will be out the last week in July"
    • I agree about the lodge. After gear and any snow it can become a heavy pull. The lodge fit in my 1500 chevy silverado (6.5 ft box) as long a you put the flat end of the tub to the front and when closing the tailgate you had to pick up the end of the sled just a little for the gate to close. 
    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
    • Thanks guys. Looks like there are a few lakes to checkout.
    • I really hope the wolves aren't seriously considering this. You take LeBron James off the cavs, and Irving leads them to an 8 seed in the east, at best! This is going to be KAT's team for years to come, so if Irving is looking to be top dog, it certainly won't be here! Personally, I don't think he'll be traded. If the lakers show any sign of improvement in this upcoming season, LeBron will be leaving to go there anyway, so Irving just needs to be patient and he'll be he top guy again.
    • We're definitely checking out our options in a couple of areas we like but I'm not sure if it will happen as early as next year or not.
    • Definitely something to be said about parking it an leaving.  My fees are nothing except the bills I help pay for at the family cabin.  Would hate hooking and unhooking all the time.
