The heat and humidity moderated a little,
so we hauled the horses to a nearby park.
Rocky & Apollo ready to roll.
Janette & Apollo are enjoying the trails
The summer thunderstorms have left lots of puddles on the trails.
Rocky & I are having fun too.
Some of the puddles were more like wading streams,
but our trusty horses walked in them willingly.
It was a fun morning.

Two sets of baby birds were raised in the barn this year.
This clutch of eastern kingbirds were hatched above a light fixture.
They left the nest June 25th.
Several baby wrens left their nest in the loft on June 23rd.
After hopping around the barn, they finally found their way outside to a very anxious mom.
Good luck little fella!

We visited Chain O' Lakes State Park which has 13 glacial lakes to explore.
We hiked around Dock Lake
Channels connect 9 of the lakes.
Its a canoeing & kayaking paradise.
There is a one room schoolhouse to visit.
We hiked several trails and found a nest, not very well hidden, in a wild rose bush.
And this tiny fawn approached us on a trail!

I noticed something odd the other day while hiking.
See that floating clump of vegetation?
Its a muskrat carrying food downstream to its den.
It dives underwater to get to its den.
There she is, popping up from underwater.
She's keeping busy.
