The View From The Backseat

I normally do a lot of driving. So taking pictures sometimes takes a backseat to concentrating on driving. Yesterday, I had the privilege to be a passenger on a day trip with Melissa and some close friends to Green Bay and Door County, Wisconsin. The day started out nice and sunny but on the return trip home things became a bit gloomy and harrowing for a few moments. I post many pictures on Facebook. Some however, I feel need to be posted here.

The Hunt

Today, I returned to Powers Bluff to look for morel mushrooms. I did not find any which is not out of the ordinary for me. Years ago, I had an acquaintance that could see them on the forest floor from about 15 yards away.  To this day,I find myself practically on my hands and knees looking for them. I could not help but take another picture of the Trillium flowers (see previous post) while I was there.


I was the only one in the park. No one around for miles. Silence, just the sounds of nature and the occasional moo of a cow off in the distance. This park used to be home to several tribes of native Americans. About this time of year they would gather from miles around to dance and celebrate the return of spring.

This is another image of Bloodroot. I was drawn to it like a magnet.

Spring in Central Wisconsin.

This caught my eye the other day. Auburndale, Wisconsin.

In a world of politically correctness and fix it now, I find the laid back attitude of Milladore Wisconsin to be alright.

Spring Flowers 2011

Well we made it through the snowy days and spring is finally here. I have had so many busy days working on little projects around the house. I am sure I will get them all completed in time. Last Saturday, I found myself with some friends at a local county park going on a guided tour of spring flowers.
 It was a cloudy day and made for good images.
