July 1

Last weekend we were int the north woods. Our cabin is in Marinette County, known for waterfalls. And trees, and wood ticks, but that is another story.We read in a guide that there was a rapids that was easily visible from the road, so on the way to town for groceries, we took the time to see the rapids.

Really nice.

 Easy to find.
Nice photo op.

 The guide book mentioned another waterfall we had not visited we decided to find it.
Down a very narrow dirt road.

We followed the sign

 A nice path
 so, a little roadblock....
 Dave said "C'mon"
 Yes, I am still on the path, if you want to call it that.
Struggling to keep my balance, this is no place for and old, fat woman who has both knees replaced, short legs and $100 sandals....

 A bird poops on my shirt! Where is the trail? I am sweating bullets by this time...
I consider turning back, but I can hear the falls now....

 Dave is already there.
I was too shook up from the walk trauma to take any decent photos, but the falls was beautiful.

 That's my foot , by this time I had abandoned the stupid sandals.

About that time, I realized that I had to get back out the way I came in!

Only slightly less traumatic....
I think I will stick to the falls that are easy to get to from now Strong Falls in Goodman Park.
