Until about the age of 12 I spent my summers in a small “A”-frame cabin up in Spread Eagle, Wisconsin, with my four siblings and my Mom. Our Dad would drive up to join us on the weekends.
My days were spent stomping through the North Woods, digging in sand bluffs, tubing, water skiing, partaking in massive hide-and-go-seek games, and searching for fish, turtles, frogs, and all other sorts of creatures.
Out of these Summers I grew a great appreciation and fondness for our natural world.
I was fortunate to be able to share some of my experiences this past week with my wife, Megan, and son, Tommy.
Below are some photos of our trip.

The small waterfalls are cool too!

The slate was perfectly smooth from years of water running across its surface.
He went down for a two and half hour afternoon nap when we got back. We figure we need to take him to waterfalls more often.

“Who is driving this thing?!”
Put in an erosion strip at the end of the driveway. Couldn’t help myself.
