Stopped into the Schlect Lake Trail.  It is 5 minutes from the resort on the way into Minocqua and lit at night.  Lots of our skiers stop in and enjoy a quick ski here.  It is also a great trail during the rest of the year for hiking.  If you are bored of the Bearskin it is a nice option for hiking

Ski trail in good shape still

Warming shed

Trails, what I like is you are never far from the parking lot

It is always fun to have a guest photographer and see the world through their eyes or lens.  Richard and Akiko Teng shared their vacation up north with me in pictures.  Above was a beautiful day to head up hwy 51

Arriving at Wildflower their home away from home

Checking out the lake for the first time

First night out the Teng’s had a wonderful evening of Jazz in the wine bar above The Brewery. It is really a wonderful place to hang out and hear live music

The next morning a beautiful one to enjoy a breakfast on the porch

I am ready to move in and eat with Richard and Akiko after seeing the wonderful meals they prepared

What a day to enjoy

After quizing me about local trails they headed over to Schlect Lake Trail on the way into Minocqua

Schlect Lake as seen from the trail

Finally a picture of our photographer Akiko and her husband Richard enjoying a lunch at The Island Cafe after hiking

On the way back to the resort the twin fawns made an appearance for them

They spent time golfing the local courses, Timber Ridge above, St Germaine and Trout Lake

After all that running it was time to relax a bit at the resort Akiko must have let Richard have the camera for once

Honestly I really have to stop in this meal looks wonderful for a picnic outside

What is being in the Nortwoods without a stop into Paul Bunyans

Again the pictures of the food are wonderful and I can almost smell the fresh baked doughnuts through the picture

how did they find so many great things to do on vacation.  Doing a bit of research

Thank you Akiko and Richard for sharing your Northwoods experience.  Hope to see you again
