Heading down to the Chippewa River and watching daylight fade to dusk was a much needed respite from the last couple days of craziness and anxiety. Cycling home with the last little bit of dusk dying around me I wondered if plugging back into the world was really worth the bother.
Bullhead pond is a neat little spot a few miles east of Eau Claire. The photo was taken a couple weeks back when fall colors were at their peak.
This is my latest photo of the paper mill I mentioned in yesterday’s Dells Pond post. I take a lot of pictures of the mill and will talk more about it in a future post.
Carson park is a an 134 acre peninsula that forms the oxbow in Half Moon Lake and it one of my favorite places in Eau Claire, it reminds me of a mini version of Point Defiance Park in Tacoma (one of the best parks ever!). The land for the park was donated by the familyContinue reading “Carson Park”

Not sure which version of the shot I like better.
