A Couple of Days in the National Forest

After leaving Mike's cabin, Julia and I hitched up and drove southeast for about 45 minutes into the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest (say that three times fast).   I've stayed at Boulder Lake campground before, but Julia has not. Most sites are reservation only, but some of the less popular sites are set aside for first come, first serve.   Except for the lakefront sites, most of the campground is well-spaced.  There are showers and a dump station.   We enjoyed a couple of relaxing days here.   

Bisbee: Off-grid Home on North Juniper Flats Road

 From February 2022

The electric company ends service at the bottom of Juniper Flats Road and Old Divide Road.  About two thirds of the way up the mountain, there are several off-grid homes.  The first one is owned by a rock band that apparently has/had concerts on the property.  Warning signs are on the side of the road, letting fans know that those who throw objects during performances will be ejected from the property and subject to arrest.

Around the next bend is a house powered by both wind and solar.  This house is on a fairly small footprint, but has amazing views.  It wasn't just a rich person's fourth home; it was occupied and lived in.
