So I returned yesterday from four days of camping/fishing in the beautiful Willow Reservoir near Tomahawk, Wisconsin with my dad, brother, and fourteen year old nephew. If you’re ever in the midwest looking for a beautiful place to retreat into nature away from civilization, consider the Willow Flowage! It’s not as remote as the Boundary Waters/Quetico, but it’s free!
And absolutely, absolutely, absolutely, gorgeous.
I love spending time with my family. I don’t do it often enough.
I LOVE spending time in nature. I’m not always the typical “outdoorsy” type, but I have found that when I spend time outside, away from computers and cell phones and even showers, I fall in love with being outdoors.
Seeing the beauty of creation puts me in this place of extreme humility. I feel so small and humbled when I see a sunset, or feel the wind on my face, or the water on my feet. This extreme sense of awe and worship overwhelms me.
