For me this is what it’s all about, living so close to the country. I LOVE barns!

Spectacular Door County Fall Part 4, The Finale

Well, we have come to the close of the photos of fall in Door County.  My husband took some real beauties.

It is our hope that you enjoy them and even more so that this may encourage you to one day visit Door County in the fall!





This is the Log Cabin restaurant in Egg Harbor….beautiful and highly recommended


A view such as this literally takes your breath away as you look down upon it and see the magnificent colors


I will admit, this is my favorite photo.  I just look at it and go, wow what a place for a drive


With this, we ended our trip to Door County.  A brilliant sunset bid us farewell.

Somehow I would not complain about a house here!

I don’t know what it is about this fence, but it struck me as so pretty!

BARNS . . . .

“Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house,and prove me

now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you

out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it”

Malachi 3:10

I love barns, there is just something about them. Maybe it is just me, I did grow up in the city and now live in the country. Barns are unfortunately disappearing from the landscape as we know it.

Note the windows in this barn and the constructs on the top of it, you do not see to many like this anymore!

To see the other four barn photos, please visit my friend Drusilla’s photo blog, Highways and Byways of My Life. The specific post on barns is found here.

Caldwell Lily Pond near Lincoln Park Zoo

During my walk with iPhone through Lincoln Park Zoo, iPhone decided that we should visit the lily pond. It was a nice day, and I was feeling pretty good, so I didn’t protest.

The Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool is just north of the zoo and is a great place to just chill out. iPhone, however, thought it was a great place to take pictures. Of course, iPhone thinks every place is a great place to take pictures. He’s become obsessed. Or possessed. Not sure which.

This is a nice place to sit and rest, read, pray, write… just about anything to relax. Unless you’re iPhone. He just gets all crazy and starts snapping shots of everything.

Of course, there is the lily pool. Which has lilies. And probably fish. But fish are evil, so I didn’t get close. I was kinda struck by the bare tree across the pond. It was just this giant stick with an afro on top.

Some of the stone landscaping. I think was part of a water fountain.

This is a different angle of the pavilion and some of the stonework around it.

The pavilion from the other side of the pool.

Lilies and stonework. And hidden evil fish.

Some ducks chilling on the stones.

The path.

I have to remember to go back earlier in the spring to get some of the blooming flowers.


All photos were taken by me, Letricia Brooks. Feel free to use them for whatever you want. Attribution or a link back to my site would be nice, but not required.

High Cliff State Park

This is High Cliff State park in the Appleton, Wisconsin area. They have many paths and routes to take and all are beautiful. Here are some of the things we saw.

These are the Lime Stone Kiln Ruins which are pretty neat!

This is lime that is still in the park.

One of my favorite photos of the water trickling down the rocks

This bridge is on the Butterfly Pond trail. Really pretty when you cross it and see all the vegetation
