Getting Here

If it was easy to get here, it wouldn't be Big Creek. An epic adventure from the get-go, the middle of nowhere is a pretty fitting way to put it. Luckily, we can provide you some direction, whether you drive or fly in.

Something about the first snowfall of the season vibrates the heartstrings in me! It will come and go for a bit like a restless child who's not quite ready for bed. But then it will finally overtake the sun's ability to melt it and the peaceful blanket of white will envelope her for her winter hibernation. May the aviators and locals keep an eye on her til she awakens again in spring! 💖( Thank you, Carrie Ellie, for taking the hike I would if I were there to get this spectacular photo!) ...

Almost 2 weeks since I've been back in Wisconsin. Not gonna lie...the colors here will straight up take your breath away! And the smell of the fallen leaves is a scent that can never be bottled. But today as I look at the overcast sky and contemplate the things I still need to unpack, (yes...without proper motivation, I have procrastination down to an artform) I am missing Big Creek 😢 So I am perusing my photos and I'm not sure if it's helping or not to revisit just a fraction of the highlights of my summer!🥹 Take a minute and wander through these with me, won't you? (Captions provided!)And then...can you help a heartsick sister out and post YOUR best memory of Big Creek in the comments?

So grateful today for all of you who share a love for this amazing place! ... See MoreSee Less
