I don’t know why it is, but whenever I ride my bike in cold temps my nose runs. Constantly. When winter time rolls around I pull out a big stack of bandanas and keep them in a handy spot by my bike so I won’t forget one when I roll out the door.
First of all I’d like to point out that I do actually eat fruit and veg. I live alone and buy fruit and veg once or twice a week from a store close to my apartment. This was a trip to a big store on the edge of town to stock up on mostly non-perishables.Continue reading “You Can Carry That On A Bike”
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.
Dells Pond is a 622 acre lake created in 1890 by damming the Chippewa River. The original purpose of the pond was for log storage and sorting for the many lumber mills that existed in Eau Claire at that time. Today the dam and pond provide hydro power and water for a paper mill thatContinue reading “Dells Pond”
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”
I grabbed one of yesterday’s photos and an older photo to show the lay-of the land around here. I was standing on the bridge in the background of the top photo to take the bottom photo. Looking at the bottom photo the trail in the top photo is about half way up the bank onContinue reading “Lay Of The Land”
Please forgive that the photos aren’t stitched together in a proper triptych, my photo editing software epic failed me in this endeavor. Some people save their money and time off to go on grand adventures in faraway lands, or spend weeks at a time hiking or paddling though wildernesses. Those options sound great to meContinue reading “Everyday Adventure Triptych”
I usually take pictures from the footbridge in the photo, not looking upstream at the bridge. This is from mid September, right before the leaves started to get their fall colors.
It’s Twofer Friday… I misjudged the position of the sun and got down to the Short Street bridge to shoot this later than I should have. Also, I think this will be a better shot in a couple weeks when the sun is a little lower in the sky. It looks a little darker onContinue reading “Sunset On The Chippewa”
