It’s been a relatively quiet summer; at least as far as any writing goes. I’ve been enjoying tagging along to help hide some paddles for the Paddle in the Park Contest. It’s been a blast! But obviously I haven’t been able to share any info about any trips until after the paddles were found.
This recent trip to Wolf lake was just to relax. It was such a lovely place. I was very excited to go and see the old growth red pines.
We had an easy portage from the road into Wolf Lake. I was spoiled. Especially since I managed to carry all my stuff in one go. So while Preston went back for the canoe, I paused to take some pictures.
This neat little mushroom caught my eye for some reason.
There was a ton of stuff left by other campers at the end of the Portage. But we made it work.
Goliath had fun sniffing around while we got ready to go.
Here they come!
My gosh. Even the first view of the lake was worth the long drive.
It’s very easy to see why there are people working hard to protect this area. (Click here for more information about that!) I’m happy to try to bring more awareness to this real hidden gem.
They’ve even left info about it on the trails.
Beautiful red pines everywhere!
Even our campsite was stunning.
Who wouldn’t want to stay here?
Before we left, we took a walk down an old growth trail. Gosh those trees were massive!
Here’s a panorama from my cell. You can see Preston in the bottom right corner to show how big the trees are!
It’s an amazing place and I can’t wait to go back! It’s definitely a hidden spot that everyone should see!
And hey! There’s even geocaching! When we wandered around, I didn’t have my cell phone with me where I had saved the coordinates, but we had a general idea of where we were supposed to look. We found one that seemed obvious…
That wasn’t it though! I can’t give away now can I?! You’ll just have to go search for it yourself!
Where’s the prettiest place you went this year?
