Picnic, Anyone?

Devils Lake State Park

Devil's Lake State Park

This is the very popular picnic area at Devil’s Lake State Park near Baraboo, Wisconsin. Today there are plenty of picnic tables available with a great view of the lake. These tables are usually at a premium. If you want to picnic here in July or August, you must set up your area at dawn.

Of course, if you’d prefer picnicking in December and don’t mind air temps about 7˚F or the wind chill below 20˚, then getting a table is no problem.

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.


  1. Bitter cold!!!! The tables remind me of mushrooms popping up out of the snow. Very nice!!!

  2. Ha. Brrr, looks so cold. I need to remember not to feel as cold as I do when it’s 15 degrees at night here.

  3. I take it there will be cold cuts?

  4. Hey look on the positive side – no ants or mosquittos and your beer doesn’t get warm.

  5. My oh my…It is beautiful but I am glad I live in the deep South.

    Look at all that snow! Too bad most of its melted now. But, still a cool shot.
