"Adventure Calls" I had a great adventure today with a dear friend. Our road trip took us to Marinette, WI for burritos and Menominee, MI to photograph Lake Michigan and one of its many light houses. Some kids were having a good time in the sun and water and were more than willing to do a bunch of jumps and flips off of this lighthouse for our cameras. Our adventures concluded in back in Bellevue, WI at Fonferek Glen, shooting and hiking in the amazing gorge and nature paths.
