I've been exploring more places to paint that are closer to home. Mequon has lots of little nature preserves that are poorly marked, therefore, it results in minimal use because no one knows they exist!
To get to this spot, we had to hike a bit. I'm very happy with my new Timbuk2 backpack. It's extra wide and I can load it with all my gear so I finally have my hands free! Our son works for an outerwear company and put me on to this backpack which he purchased for me at a discount (sweet).
