Another Great Vatten Paddlar Race on Eau Claire Lakes in Barnes and Gordon, WI

I’m proud to have been a sponsor of this year’s Vatten Paddlar canoe and kayak race, which was held July 6 on the Eau Claire Chain of Lakes in Barnes and Gordon, Wisconsin.  I was glad for the opportunity to support our local community, and also to spread the word about the natural beauty of the lakes and rivers in this part of northwest Wisconsin.

Many of the elite racers turned in incredibly fast times.  Even more important, pretty much everyone there had an incredibly fun time.  Here are a few scenes from the race.  For more images and full race results, visit www.vattenpaddlar.com.

Many thanks to David Delforge for running a great event.

Training for Vatten Paddlar? More Great Paddling near Barnes, Gordon, Minong, and Solon Springs

I’m proud to be a sponsor of this year’s Vatten Paddlar canoe and kayak race, which will be held July 6 on the Eau Claire Chain of Lakes in Barnes, Wisconsin.  I’m grateful for this opportunity to support our local community, and also to spread the word about the natural beauty of the lakes and rivers in this part of northwest Wisconsin.

I suspect a few paddlers and their families have enjoyed extra weekends in the area while checking out the course.  (If you haven’t been able to do that,check out my earlier blog post for a little virtual scouting.)  While you’re at it, please come on back to explore some of our other lakes and rivers, too.

Our local area is famous for paddling on rivers like the Brule, Saint Croix, and Namekagon, but we also have lots of lakes that are great for flatwater paddling.  Even most of the larger, more open lakes have lots of sheltered bays to explore.  Take, for example, the 1,564-acre Minong Flowage, with its meandering, 24.8 mile shoreline.  Or, there’s the 1,913-acre Gordon Flowage (also known as the Saint Croix Flowage), which has over 27 miles of shoreline and lots of isolated bays that offer a near-wilderness experience.  Hug the shoreline for a single lap, and there’s a pretty decent workout.

If you’re racing, even recreationally, then you’re not afraid to paddle upstream now and then.  That opens up lots more options.  Here’s just one example: Instead of merely paddling downstream from Solon Springs and Upper Saint Croix Lake to the Gordon Flowage, you could start in the Gordon Flowage, paddle upstream to Upper Saint Croix Lake, and then paddle back on down to your starting point.

Feeling less ambitious today? No problem.  Here’s a fast canoe being paddled slowly on a quiet corner of the Saint Croix Flowage near Gordon, Wisconsin.  Enjoy!

We will help you sell your home with great photos that get your property noticed

I was delighted to help my clients sell their home on northwest Wisconsin’s Matthews Lake; it just closed last week. This lovely Scandinavian-style cabin has a great location on this clear lake in Trego, WI.  But what really got buyers’ attention were the spectacular photos, both interiors and exteriors, that truly captured the home’s beauty and its wooded, waterfront setting.  My clients were excited about the photos; they knew it was a difference that would make their home stand out from the crowd.

For those great interiors and exteriors, I’d like to thank my husband and in-house photographer Al Cambronne.   To see more examples from this listing, just scroll on down.

Then, if you’d like to see big, beautiful, full-resolution versions of these and other photos from recent projects, check out Al’s website over at AlCambronnePhoto.com.
