CHEQUAMEGON NATIONAL FOREST (WI)



MONDAY - We have a short 49-mile travel day today. We'll be headed straight south and into the Chequamegon National Forest.

There must be a half dozen roads we could have taken to arrive at the Two Lakes Campground and all of them are paved, EXCEPT the one our Garmin GPS chose for us to take.

At least the road crew was out grading the road for our arrival.


The reason behind Garmin choosing this route?
It's because it saved us a whopping 2-miles of additional driving on smooth pavement.


Our site here at Two Lakes Campground was plenty big for a change and had a nice view of Bass Lake, just one of the two lakes found here, the other being Lake Owen.

Our private path down to the lake.

Yeah, the dragonflys have hatched. An adult dragonfly can eat hundreds of mosquitoes a day.
They're welcome to share our campsite with us anytime and the more the merrier too!



TUESDAY - With very spotty cell phone service here and the tree cover too dense to get any kind of Starlink reception, we've decided to cut our visit here from three days down to two.

That means we only have today to get our sightseeing activity accomplished.
