Ice Fishing and Christmas

New ice in northern Minnesota. Literally a thin skin on the water with unbelievable strength. Four inches of clear ice and a small car can drive on it (if there are no cracks, thin spots, snow ice, no wind to buckle it, no springs underneath, you don’t drive too fast, and other unforeseen issues)  ifContinue reading “Ice Fishing and Christmas”

How do you greet the morning?

Like fire in the sky the day came in a wonderment of colors. The clouds picked up and threw the reds at our little place in northern Minnesota. I put my coffee on the railing by the front door and snapped a few shots of the morning skyline by the drive. Nothing would be crossedContinue reading “How do you greet the morning?”

The Dark Side of Light

I often contemplate concepts too big to fully grasp. Sitting in the dark while waiting for the light is a part of hunting, camping, fishing, hiking, and much of the outdoor world that I love. I memorized a verse (John 1:5 in the Bible) and have thought about the multiple meanings of darkness not being ableContinue reading “The Dark Side of Light”

Cold Spots-Warm Heart?

I have welts on my wrist from the amount of arm twisting it takes to  get me to go fishing but I said yes. TheseContinue reading “Fishing Camp in Northern Minnesota September 19-25”

Consider the Loon

The loons were dunking their heads into the water, rubbing the back of their heads on their feathers, diving once in awhile, but mostly checking out this stranger on a very small rock island sticking out of their lake. Black flies and mosquitoes were attacking them and I think they wanted to hand them offContinue reading “Consider the Loon”

>Sowing your wild oats? Picture Truth Series #4 by Gary Fultz

> A sea of weed seeds ready to sow The bulldozing strip was perfect. I stood in a sea of white weeds while deer hunting last November in wool pants. I spent a whole evening, after hunting, picking out all the various types of weed seeds that stick to the wool. Like the dandelion, theseContinue reading “>Sowing your wild oats?
