Last Fall, I made several trips to Jones County Central Park, which is along the Grant Wood Scenic Byway. Although a smaller park, it is a real jewel!
Four of us entered at the Kawishiwi Lake entry point and traveled to Malberg Lake where we base-camped for 3 days. The weather was more rainy and gray than we would have preferred, but we still had a great time. Be sure to check out the slide show from this trip by following the YouTube link on my homepage.
Please forgive the long time since my last entry… even though I have not been very good about updating the website, I have been taking many photos. I spent the last week of September in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness with 5 friends. They spent much time fishing and I spent much time photographing. We had spectacular weather and scenery. We base camped 3 nights at Lower Basswood Falls then 2 nights on Fourtown Lake. Please stop by my Boundary Waters gallery and see my latest additions.
I just returned from another canoe trip to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in Northern Minnesota. We entered at Seagull Lake and traveled through Saganaga and basecamped on Cherry Lake. We had beautiful weather the first 4 days then a storm front moved through and gave us cooler temperatures, wind, rain and some snow. Please take a look at my Boundary Waters gallery

I visited Pinicon Ridge County Park
, near Central City, Iowa today. This time of year the terrain has been sort of blah, but looking closer at some of the ice formations near Horseshoe Falls, I saw some intriguing patterns. These abstract patterns were a deviation from the type of images I normally capture… I had a great time until my feet got cold 🙂

I visited Mines of Spain Recreation Area
near Dubuque, Iowa yesterday. I had intended to visit for a long time, but am very glad I finally made it. There were many trails… some of which still show signs of damage from the heavy rains (approx. 14 inches this summer). I hiked the Catfish Creek and Horseshoe Bluff trails. The bluffs in the Horseshoe Bluff area were incredible! I started to climb Horseshoe Bluff, but it was so steep, I opted not to go all the way to the top.
I just returned from another canoe trip to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in Northern Minnesota. We entered at Moose River North and basecamped at Iron Lake. We had unbelievably warm temperatures of nearly 80 degrees the entire trip! The fishing was good and photography was also good. Take a look at my Boundary Waters gallery
