Woodland Dunes, Hennings Cheese, WI

We hiked in Woodland Dunes, a preserve not far from us.  I'm not taking many pics right now as I'm too busy trying to out walk the mosquitoes;)  We did see a fairly unusual sight though that I did managed to shoot and that is the pic below of 3 juvenile ospreys.  Unusual to have more than 2 in a nest so I was feeling kinda lucky about this:

 Henning cheese is well known and greatly enjoyed in the area so we drove out to taste some cheese.  Mike got a bag of squeaky fresh cheese curds and was in heaven:) We will be stopping by before we leave the area for cheese to take with us!
 They had a small museum.....
And we could see into the factory but no cheese was being made that day unfortunately
 Friday night we went with family and friends to a fish fry which is a time honored tradition in these parts.  Virtually every restaurant has one.  I had Perch and tasted Whitefish and Pike and it was all good!


  1. Pesky mosquito's! I had never had cheese curds until last summer in CO...and they were quite tasty, the squeak is a bit weird though!

  2. Mike, who does not like salt, loves curds! I've told him he can no longer get on me about salt because I think curds are very salty!


Staying in the Ozarks, Roaring River State Park

Located in southwest Ozark hills, Roaring River is picturesque state park.  The river is stocked with rainbow trout right from the hatchery ...
