day 4074 - 239/365. odin riding the rapids on the west fork of the kickapoo.

spent the day hanging out with some fine folks involved with the valley stewardship network ( one of which is my better half! ) on the west branch of the kickapoo river. he’s very serious about tackling the rapids such are they are :-)

still getting used to odin and his all-growed-up-ed-ness wearing contact lenses.

80/365. spring snow in wisco.

80/365. spring snow in wisco.

the first day of spring was a few days ago and with no snow on the ground for some time, lots of folks just put away shovels for the season. of course, mother nature didn’t get the memo about winter being over.

it could get heavier overnight with 8 inches of total accumulation possible! odin’s betting there’s a good chance for school delay or cancellation :-)

36/365. Sledding with work peeps at the Hemstead Homestead.
