Rocks Can Be Moved

Re-building PCS

Rocks Can Be Moved

Rocks form stepping stones along the Ice age Trail in Northeastern Marathon County.

Sometimes working with systematic tools like computers can be a challenge as they seem to have their limits . This past summer, people were roughing it out and making those challenges on the Ice Age Trail while building a new segment in the Plover River State Fishery area.

Through the Mobil Skills Crew and the Ice Age Trail University, this new trail was built.  By attending the Ice Age Trail University, people developed leadership skills needed to move rocks.

We all have rocks to be moved.  Mine was in becoming a webmaster for the Friends of the Mountain-Bay State Trail.  In doing so,   I had to learn much about what my skills are and how to work with new “programs” to get the job done. There are many things that I want to do with that site in order to make it an asset in promoting the trail and the communities it connects.

Unlike the Ice age Trail, the Mountain-Bay Trail originated as a transportation corridor.  It was a railroad line running roughly parallel to STH 29 between Wausau and Green Bay, WI.  On this line,  the Chicago & Northwestern Railway moved both passengers an freight carrying the load of commerce and trade into the central part of the state from Lake Michigan.  It continues to connect for pedestrians, bicyclists, and snowmobilers through-out the years.

A New Word

Petunias in a hanging Pot

I often venture into new things with a little bit of caution.  But I found myself taking a walk with my D-80 and a 60mm Micro-Nikkor a t hand.   I love to show different parts of flowers.   The aim of the flower’s purpose is reproduction, but the color is a feast for our eyes.   Photography is not always an art unto itself.  Photography is a complement to the work of the master artist.
