  1. My very favorite thing to do is a ride through the woods on my horse, with my dog tagging along. The next favorite it a ride through the woods in my Jeep. There are hundreds of miles of logging roads mapped out on some of the DNR maps and it’s breath taking riding a two track past a hidden little lake. No matter what time of the year it is, this is always memorable, but the fall will absolutely take your breath away
