Hi friends– at the end of a wild and wonderful week in Wisconsin with the family. Laurel’s John was our travel guide– and one morning he trundled us all up to Star Lake for a 2.5 mile trek through the forest, across a bog and around the lake. It was gloriously green and one of my favorite parts of the trip…
Brian primed the pump for pre-hike drinks.
And Grandpa Larry is always good for a horse-back ride when the going gets long…
Aunt Laurel supplied Maryann with an install camera to snap prints along the way– and those two are always up for a dramatic pose along the way!
John and his hiking buddies by the Black Lagoon (an actual place, not just a book!)
I always have to include a “bottoms on the trail” picture (since I’m the last in line!)
Along the pathways we found all kinds of mushrooms and moss and interesting things growing.
There were a couple rest stops along the path–Ani by Star Lake…
…and a bit of wading involved.
Soaking up the tranquil beauty all along the way.
Micah. Jodi and the 3 grand-girls took a family photo at the end of the trail.
Larry snaps a shot of the group at a rest point.
Thanks Laurel and John for planning a fun day out in such a gorgeous spot. Loved loved it!
