First Day of Summer

This summer so far has been a staining/painting summer.  Between myself and my boy we have done 3 decks, a small fence, and a dresser. 

We have been keeping cool by kayaking in Lake Ontario and tubing down the Chippewa River.  We're in WI now.

Noticed a few trees turning in the higher gravel (drier) country this week in NW Wis. (I'm about 20 miles east of Duluth MN and 6-8 miles south inland of Lake Superior).
We've had a wet early summer here, heavy rainfall, flash flooding to the south and east of here. US Hwy 2 is still closed for bridge repair west of Ashland. Our club lucked out with not too much damage from flash flooding. Only went over our grade in three places in a small area.
Southern part of our county around Solon Springs was hit pretty hard along with Eastern Bayfield and Ashland County's section of Trail 2  (Tri County Corridor).

Now, wet as it was earlier we haven't had much rain lately, thus some of the trees turning a little early.

Now we're out mowing and grading our Summer ATV railroad grades.

I just drove through this area, for the first time a few days ago ! Very nice along Lake Superior ! I was surprised how nice and how big those towns were as well !
Took my oldest son to a few college visits at UW and UMN area.... Drove through hwy 2 all the way back to the UP of MI and spent a few days at the cabin. Nice road trip !

Which colleges did you visit in Minnesota? Guessing, since you took US2, Duluth was one of them?

Yes, Duluth is on his list of schools. REALLY nice campus and set up. He really liked it. I'm a little freaked out with the size of the city, but he seemed to not mind that....
UW - Superior was much too small of a campus for his liking. He's crossed that one off the list entirely, unfortunately that school was the most economical one  :'(

Congrats! SkeDu, I'm guessing?   Hopefully mine will be in by mid November so I can get it setup for a hoped for mid December Vilas trail opening.
