Fall Escapes to the North Woods

Have I mentioned lately how much I love camping? We packed up the car and headed north for some scamping, it was our first visit to Big Bog State Recreation Area.

It’s right by Upper Red Lake, Red Lake is the largest freshwater lake located entirely within Minnesota.

The air was alive with monarch butterflies.

And something far more sinister. We watched this female Northern Harrier hunting along the shoreline for quite some time.

Fortunately she didn’t see this little guy.

The days were breathtakingly beautiful.
