NW Wisconsin North Country Hiking Trail: Bird Sanctuary Clubhouse to Highway 53 Trailhead

We are so fortunate to have The North Country Hiking Trail right in our back yard (well almost). The North Country Trail stretches from New York to North Dakota with hundreds of miles crossing Northern Wisconsin.

This 3.3 mile segment of the North Country Scenic Trail is right here in the Gordon-Solon Springs area. Because it traverses relatively open terrain, this segment is a good place to enjoy the vista. Near the north end of the route, there’s also a nice walk-in campsite overlooking Leo Creek.

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.
