AJ wasn’t feeling well Sunday morning, so I drove north by myself to spend the day with a friend visiting from Florida. He has a house near Grantsburg, WI. It’s on ten acres and has a creek, but we spent almost no time there. Instead, we jumped in his Explorer and drove around Crex Meadows, a huge wildlife refuge, and the surrounding area. I got some terrific pics.
Today, I’ll share landscapes. This is sort of in the center of where we were. Grantsburg is a huge tourist destination in summer.
When you go through town, you see yellow geese painted on the roads. Follow them, and they take you to Crex Meadows. I plan to post the bird photos I shot on Wednesday.
For a while, we were lost on gravel roads. He sort of knew where we were, I sure as hell had no idea, and neither of us cared. It was sunny, hot, and there was a terrific breeze blowing. It was mostly about us being together again after such a long while and catching up on each other’s lives.
I spotted this rustic garage and asked my friend to stop. He was amenable. In fact, any time I asked him to pull over, he did. At one point, he was taking photos with his phone. 🙂
We were on one of those back roads when I spotted an eagle nest at the top of a dead tree.
That’s one hell of a silhouette, but I zoomed in and grabbed a closeup of the nest itself.
When I got home, AJ was already in bed. He had a migraine. He’s been getting them too much lately. I want him to go back to the doctor and try a different medicine. Or maybe he needs glasses. Who knows? I hate seeing him in pain though.
I’ll be back Wednesday with more photos.
