St. Peter's Dome, Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest, Wisconsin-2012.

We survived the hike to St. Peter's Dome (Christine, my daughter-in-law and John and Alex, my grandchildren and I)  The path was steep, had muddy spots, loose rocks were under foot and there were tree roots to pass over or around.  Our reward for reaching the top of St. Peter's Dome was a panoramic view of Chequamegon Bay of Lake Superior and the Apostle Islands.

Hosta in bloom.

Today, my husband saw a mama bear and three cubby bears resting in the middle of Highway 70 and County Trunk "A" near Stone Lake, Wisconsin.   He accelerated the truck slowly toward them.  The big bear decided to get up and walked into the nearby cornfield and then the smaller bears got up and did the same. John said he " felt safe in a truck but not so safe if he had been walking alongside the paved road."

It is cooler today.   As I left the cabin early this morning the air smelled like fall. Jeepers there are only two more weeks left in August and then it will be September.   It is hard to believe that summer is almost over even though it was hot and dry. 

Nice of you to stop by and visit.   Meanwhile, take care.   See you next time.

Earth, Teach Me Quote 468 An Ute Prayer

Earth teach me quiet ~ as the grasses are still with new light
Earth teach me suffering ~ as old stones suffer with memory
Earth teach me humility ~ as blossoms are humble with beginning
Earth teach me caring ~ as mothers nurture their young
Earth teach me courage ~ as the tree that stands alone
Earth teach me limitation ~ as the ant that crawls on the ground
Earth teach me freedom ~ as the eagle that soars in the sky
Earth teach me acceptance ~ as the leaves that die each fall
Earth teach me renewal ~ as the seed that rises in the spring
Earth teach me to forget myself ~ as melted snow forgets its life
Earth teach me to remember kindness ~ as dry fields weep with rain
