The reason we won't be going to Denmark anytime soon.

Unless someone can assure us the coast is clear.

Spooky Spirits

Target knows grownups like treats too.

Not too far from the candy corn, snack-sized Snickers bars, and dreaded Bit-O-Honey, is a carefully selected grouping of Halloween-themed wines. Mostly blood red of course.

That 5:00-7:00 trick-or-treating time can get awfully long without a little sustenance so stock up. 
Grab some cheese and crackers too. 

 Oh, and don't forget the candy. Although it's been done...raiding the pantry for cans of corn and the like is not all that popular with the kids.

Our love of garden gnomes goes only so far.

Not this far.

The Sure-Fire Outdoor Recreation Incentive Plan

Forest Lodge Nature Trail.  A great place for a fall color hike.

The trail, with interpretive guidebook, is great for kids and adults. 
It passes through a diverse set of ecosystems including a hemlock grove, a bog, and a swamp, as well as pine, tamarack, maple, birch and aspen stands.

And hey! When the hike is done it is just a bit more distance down the road to the classic lodge and bar at Garmisch USA resort

Due to having walked the longer outer loop of the nature trail we felt very deserving of the Garmisch famous Bloody Mary and their amazing Swiss mushroom burger.

Yes, you can believe your eyes, you are seeing a pickle, olive, celery stick, pickled green bean, asparagus and Brussels sprout, lemon and lime slices, cheese cube and....a beef stick! with beer chaser on the side.
A meal in a glass and an impressive feat of beverage engineering.

That's how we do things in the Northwoods.

Our Spidey Sense Tells Us...

Not even the powers of a superhero could lure several generations of fall festers 
out of a pile of freshly fallen leaves and into his bounce house attraction.

Looks to us like Spidey wants to join the fun and jump in too.

Enjoy the colors while they last.

WPA Modern

Good commissioned Dan Cassaro to create images in the style of last century's 
WPA posters.

Great designs and timely messages!
