Northwoods Stewardship Center

Last night, the Merrymakers performed at the Northwoods Stewardship Center Coffee House. I didn't take any photos last night, but returned in today's beautiful weather with the two beagles from hell, Scout and Sophie. Above you see the stage of the main Northwoods building, seen below. Northwoods Blog is an excellent resource for our local northern forest.

Below, we see Sophie, whom Amy said would never run far from me, out on the pond eating something large that was frozen in the ice. She ignored me until she ate the whole thing up.

A view of Bald Mountain from the deck of the main house. 

Another view below, with Sophie still eating whatever that was.

You can rent snowshoes and cross-country skis here for $5 a day.

Mountain biking in the summer.

Scout had a thirty foot lead tied to my waist. This, Amy told me, would allow me to take photographs while making sure that Scout, a runner, would not disappear on me. She never disappeared. But she did see a red squirrel to chase and she pulled me over on my backside with that lead. More here.

All photos will open full-sized in a new window when clicked.


  1. gorgeous winterland peaceful and quiet looking.

  2. You are almost making me long for winter again -- hard to do while I am in Hawaii. Not sure I'm ready to trade yet -- but ummm those are nice photos!
