Lake Daze

I have officially survived two days without any contact with the real world. Namely, I did not have any cell phone service or wifi for two days.

My family and I took a trip down to Wisconsin where we had rented a cottage for the weekend. Upon arrival, I discovered that my AT&T did not in fact have service in this little town. No big deal, I would just hook my phone up to the cottage's wifi.

There was no wifi.

I searched high and low for a router that may have been accidentally shut off. There were not even internet hook ups in this cottage. There was, however, a radio that looked 50 years old and a record player that was conveniently built right into the wall.

After I got over my initial shock of having to live without wifi for two days, I moved on with my life and went canoeing.

For our second day at the cottage, we drove "into town" to visit a nearby State Park and go hiking. This provided me with a perfect opportunity to capture a few scenic shots while trying to avoid tripping on roots and eating dirt. Literally, in this case.

The hiking trail wound around a set of criss-crossing rivers. After having hiked for a couple hours, all I wanted to do was dive into the water and cool off.
