Well, between moving and working I haven't had a lot of energy this summer for fishing. I have, however, gotten in a few hikes around my vicinity with my trusty Nikon at the ready, so I thought I would share some of the local flora, fauna, and scenery. This is about 10 miles west of my former location...enjoy!

Jonathon

P.S. More to come...
No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...

Beautiful Jonathon, as I mentioned before my grandmother was born and raised in Mikado, and we spent many summer days on the Pine river, and other areas berry picking and all things folks used to do! My grandmother was a teacher for a while at the log cabin school house, which has now be moved to another location. I love that area, and Cedar lake, man were does time go?
Mike.
