It was a crazy busy weekend at Devil’s Lake State Park as expected. The perfect Saturday weather made for a great day and a fantastic Halloween Hike!
I certainly hope everyone who visited our part of Wisconsin this weekend had a great time whatever you were up to. Saturday was simply crazy everywhere. The folks at Devil’s Lake State Park’s Halloween hike lost count somewhere after 500 people, so that was busy. The Halloween hike has been a long tradition at both Devil’s Lake and Mirror Lake State Park and we’re pleased to see the growth. When you see the kids in their costumes out on the trail, you instantly know why you do it!
Well, it looks like temperatures will be hanging in the 40s and 50s over the coming week which is fine with me. It means we’ve entered hot cider and spiced wine season! The perfect time to visit one of the many local orchards and pumpkin patches. (Personally, I’m staying away from the mazes this year. It gets pretty cold curled up in a corner and waiting for a rescue!)
Anyway, here at Skillet Creek we’re working on a variety of stories for you this week including our favorite Devil’s Lake & Baraboo Hills monster & ghost stories, sharing the latest Devil’s Lake crittercam videos, putting together sandhill crane staging info and more. The best way to follow along is to subscribe to our blog via email on the sidebar of this page (Or if you’re on a mobile device, scroll down!). You can also follow Skillet Creek on Facebook , Tumblr or Twitter.
Have a great week everyone, and a personal thank you to all the volunteers that have helped with park events and trail work this year. You’ve all made a real difference in 2017 and it shows!! Thank you!
