Snapshots of a Wisconsin Summer

I’ve been busy putting the finishing touches on the first round of videos going live on the 14th, so enjoy some photos from my summer in Wisconsin. Have a good week, and see you all on Thursday for the big reveal!

At my parent’s house

Minocqua, WI

Clear Lake State Park

Carol Lake near Woodruff, WI

Ducks in Madison

A rainbow over the state capitol

A storm rolling in over the Ice Age Trail near Verona

Summerfest grounds in Milwaukee

Peninsula State Park on the shore of Lake Michigan

My dad’s old tractor, still runs fine.

On the family fishing boat at Nepco Lake in Wisconsin Rapids

It's good to share:

    I think I know that Minocqua picture, is that behind the brewery?

      That’s Torpy Park and it is located just east (behind) of Minocqua Brewing Company, but that brewery is fairly recent and the park has been there a long time.

    Looks like your dad has been working on a good firewood supply. Lol

      Yep, my dad is pretty amazing. He cuts and hauls enough wood to heat the family home all through the long Wisconsin winters.

    Still can’t believe your pics are from your cell phone!

    Hard to believe summer is in the rear view mirror, but I’m glad to see it go.

      Smartphones have some quite excellent cameras these days. 🙂

      I’m of a mixed mind. I love fall but am not fond of winter, and the end of summer means, in the immortal words of House Stark, “Winter is coming”. 😛

    Love all the pictures, you do have a pretty good eye for photos. Love your dad’s old tractor.He seems to be a man who knows how to take care of something worth taking care of, oh and the tractor is is good condition also.
    Until Thursday, may God continue to Bless you and yours and your adventures are all fun.

    Like your Tardis t-shirt!

      Thanks Pagey.

    We are currently hosting at Clear Lake Campground and thinking of you. Daytime temperatures will be around 80 this week. Passed Torpy Park on the way into town today. Back in the 1960’s, swam there as a little kid, when my great-aunt worked at the concession stand. Fond memories.

      Yeah I was thinking the warm weather was over Keri and then it came back! Thanks for the thoughts and I hope the rest of the season treats you well. 🙂

    The tractor doesn’t seem like it still runs. You dad must be an efficient farming legend. Is he still alive?

      Trust me, it runs. My dad is 67 and still cuts and hauls enough firewood with that tractor each summer to heat our family home through the long Wisconsin winters. He’s a pretty amazing guy.

    Great photos, thanks for sharing them. I made it to Wisconsin twice this year including the Ice Age trail, Madison and Apostle Islands National Lakeshore.

      You’re welcome John. Madison’s a nice place to visit.

    Your parent’s house is really nice Becky. I wish I could live a place like that.

    • Becky October 7, 2017 at 7:24 pm #

      Oh, the captions are below the pictures. That building isn’t my parent’s house, although it is a very nice building, and my parents do have a pretty nice house!
