I have a ton of crap to get done before I start class tomorrow. But when our pal, Steve, suggested we go on a photowalk Sunday, I wasn't about to turn it down. He and my husband went a few months back and I was too busy to join, so I didn't want to miss out this time (twelve year old, that I am). Since we received a fresh, white canvas of snow to shoot, I suggested we head to the Southern Unit of the Kettle Moraine State Forest about 45 minutes away. We covered maybe 10 acres of the 22,000+, staying within the Paradise Spring Nature Area. A beautiful little spot that once housed a resort with baths and tennis courts, in the early part of the 1900's. Now, nature has taken back over and only the spring house remains, sans roof, and a few stone foundations that you have to go off the beaten path to look for.
It was a gorgeous walk on a beautiful day, with the silly immaturity of two men who've known each other for thirty odd years. I'd say going was a no-brainer, but they might not appreciate the pun. ;o)
More pix to share as I get to them...
