Driving up State Avenue I looked over at her. The sky was milk and she had turned to slate. “Stop the car.”
There are so many great spots along the north shore it is fun exploring new spots each time! #onlyinmn #capturemn #captureminnesota # exploremn #exploreminnesota # thisismyminnesota #thisismymn # mnproud#bestofminnesota # bestofmn #minnesotaphotographers #keepnaturewild #moodygrams #artofvisuals # visualambassadors #depthsofearth # earthfocus #amongthewild #greatlakesproud #longlivelakelife #escapetothelake#goodvibesgreatlakes #greatlakeslocals #midwestmoment #optoutside #neverstopexploring#liveauthentic #minnesota #minnesotaexposure

Thankful to grow up and experience life in the Great Lakes State.
Despite there not being more then a few inches of snow along the North Shore it’s been cold enough for the rivers and waterfalls to work there winter magic. ❄️ #onlyinmn #capturemn #captureminnesota # exploremn #exploreminnesota # thisismyminnesota #thisismymn # mnproud#bestofminnesota # bestofmn #minnesotaphotographers #keepnaturewild #moodygrams #artofvisuals # visualambassadors #depthsofearth # earthfocus #amongthewild #greatlakesproud #longlivelakelife #escapetothelake#goodvibesgreatlakes #greatlakeslocals #midwestmoment #optoutside #neverstopexploring#liveauthentic #minnesota #minnesotaexposure #northshore
After a long day of hiking and a few hours of driving the sun made a dramatic appearance after hiding all day.

Several of my favorite supper clubs are in this book, including Michael’s in Wausau, WI and Silver Birch in Tomahawk, WI. This is the second book of Ron Faiola’s supper club series. Great gift to give any Wisconsin supper club fan! It usually sells for under $25 on Amazon!
When I asked Beth at Silver Birch how they store this jolly fellow, she responded with, “Very carefully.” 😂 He was as tall as my husband (if not taller) with so many lifelike details. We were sure he was going to wink at us at any given second!
I crossed another item off my post-surgery/State Park bucket list! My goal was to visit 3 State Parks after surgery one and before either the MRI or surgery two, and I’ve already checked off 3 new ones! I hope to finish a State Trail next and one more Ice Age Trail segment.🥾
Remember summer? Don't ever forget moments like this. And don't forget, "What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness." - John Steinbeck - 📷 @ampersandlettering
FINALLY got back up north this weekend. We’re working on insulating our cabin a bit better for winter and have also been going through dozens of bins that came from the cabin we just sold. Lots of work doesn’t mean no play. Happy to have gotten in a walk along the trail!
Let ‘em go, let ‘em grow! 🐟
St. Nick came last night and left everyone @lakeeffectco in their stockings! Whatta guy! 🌊
So many ways to embrace winter! Win-Man trails is only 10mn from dog friendly Sunrise Resort. Fat tire bike (local rentals available), cross country ski, snow shoe or just a snowy hike.

Just stopping to take in this little winter scene. One of my go to places on the property to clear my head and get perspective. This little stream meets up with rivers that join up with larger rivers which then end up feeding the Mississippi River which eventually makes it way to the Gulf of Mexico. Think if I got my tire tube floaty out I could make it the whole way? #midwest_captures

“I have been weightless in your waves when I needed carrying most.” - @MaeStier - We're doing #GIVINGTUESDAY big over here! With one of our favorite Michiganders (who just so happens to be a photographer, LEco blog contributor, and the wildly beautiful soul who wrote the poem above) we put together a new shirt featuring her #LetterstoLakeMichigan "Home" poem above. $10 of every shirt goes directly to the org @flow_for_water - a group that works to safeguard the Great Lakes. - Outside of the purchases of that shirt - linked in bio - 10% of all site sales today go to @surfridermke vs the standard 5%. Surfrider's goal is also to safeguard the shores we love, and the Milwaukee chapter dedicates its efforts on equal parts fighting issues and creating relationships between us and the water. Like we always say, if you love it, you'll be motivated to take care of it. - You can deny it all you want, but there’s more to it than just the beauty of the waves, and we share an obligation to support the lakes, as they support us. Read the post linked in our bio if you don't believe me that water is a scientifically proven happiness-generator. ✨🌊 #longlivelakelife - 📷 @maestier

Cheers to the DREAMERS! Small Business Saturday is an incredible opportunity to support the little guys and gals - the brands, the brains and brawn that drive them. This work isn't easy, the risk feels fairly monstrous at times, but it is beyond rewarding. When you have a mission on your heart, it's hard to consider a different life, so when your mission resonates with others and compels them to open their attention and wallets, there's a HUGE and humbling moment of gratitude. Keep on voting with your dollars. Keep on sharing your excitement for what we've built (word of mouth is basically everything). You have no idea just how much it means to the small businesses, the owners and staff, the communities, and the dreams that fuel them! . And of course, don't forget that our 25% OFF sale (on orders of $50+) continues on through Tuesday, but purchasing on Small Biz Saturday feels like a true high five. . And we'd be foolish not to give a HUGE HUGE shoutout to the many stockists who believe in our mission too - we see you hustling, we appreciate your big hearts, and we wish you a wildly successful day, holiday season, and year ahead :) - 📷 @naturalintuitionphoto
Our Black Friday sale is live. Head over to our shop at your leisure, it’ll be live all weekend. Spend time with family first, then grab that lake lover a gift and one for yourself too!

Thankful for friends who make me laugh on the coldest of fall-winter days 👯♀️. And thankful for these cute HEATR layers at @wsisports.

There’s no other place like this in the world 🌎 . When I think of “lake life”, I think of the #BWCA . It’s public land where everyone can connect with nature & find peace by canoeing, camping, fishing, hiking & even drinking from the lakes. I hope everyone gets to experience it sometime in their life. 🛶 Today is Give to the Max Day & I’m teaming up with @friendsbwcaw to protect the Boundary Water’s wilderness & pristine waters. Our donation today will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $25,000 thanks to generous supporters of the BWCA. Help @friendsbwcaw reach their goal & continue their work in protecting, restoring, educating & creating access to the BWCA. Link in bio to make a difference!
