We collected our Wisconsin trail cam footage, and it was the summer of the bear. Bears moved one of the cameras off-kilter, then, feeling generous, moved the darn thing back in place. So many bears! I winnowed the selections down to a few highlight critters. Although, the best images we watched on a slide show and didn't include here. (I was already burned out on images, and didn't want to fuss any further)
Follow the hooves and claws...
Meanwhile, us humans spent the holiday weekend picking blueberries and grapes, ogling a good old fashioned Demolition Derby from afar, and biking on the Chippewa Trail and the Old Abe Trail. (which is named after an eagle) We didn't see any eagles, but a coyote crossed the path right in front of us!
The name commemorates Old Abe, a bald eagle that was captured in 1861 by Ahgamahwegezhig, a Native American man, near the South Fork of the Flambeau River.
Happy Labor Day!
