Check out the link above for an interesting story of a local bear in Lake Tomahawk.  It does explain why outside feeding is sometimes not the best thing.  When we have had a bear on our deck we have removed the food source.  Not sure if I would have had the guts to do what this woman did


I was shocked to see this leaf out in the woods.  It has been cool but we are not ready to plunge right into fall.  Temps will be increasing by the weekend to summer levels again.  I love the fall colors but we are not quite ready for them yet
