Sometimes who you travel with is more important than where you go or what you see. It was a simple walk on a trail at Mauthe Lake State Park. I have walked this 2.5 mile trail before, so has Katie. It was Chips (the dog) first time. Part way around the lake the trail split and the one we wanted was off limits to dogs. Chips continued along the dog friendly trail with my wife and other daughter. Katie and I finished the lake trail together. We had a wonderful time, stopping to catch every butterfly, study every dragonfly and talk about the ferns and uprooted trees in the bog. Katie has a real passion to take in every detail.
