Jeepin’ to Honeycomb Rock

Honeycomb Rock Trip

Honeycomb Rock Trip (click on map to enlarge)

On Thursday we took a Jeep trip into the desert to Honeycomb Rock (also called Rovey’s Needle or Holey Rock).

I’m pleased to report that none of our vehicles were damaged, and we all came back in one piece.

It was a great day trip.

Photos and video from our trip . . .

Overflow’s Secret Beach

Overflow Site #1

Overflow Site #1

There’s a group of campsites at Crazy Horse Campground called “Overflow”.

On the official campsite map, the Overflow sites aren’t even shown. There’s just a “road to overflow area” shown (on the map look above the “r” in “Crazy Horse Campground”.)

From the porch of our park unit, we can look across the marina below us and see several campers on the “Overflow” ridge. There’s usually several campers at Overflow, but we’ve never bothered to check it out.

Overflow seemed like RVers parked in a wasteland. Then I took Flirt for a walk up the ridge to Overflow.

When Flirt and I reached the top of the ridge, it looked like a huge gravel parking lot.

We kept walking . . . past the Overflow campers and to the edge of the lake bluff.

Then we saw it . . .

A “private” beach . . .

Flirt & I walked a Jeep trail down to the lake shore and found a beach that continued for several hundred feet. The beach was shallow with a sandy bottom.

We’ll be back for a swim when it warms up in Spring.

Here are some photos from our walkabout . . .

Let there be Heat!

Mark it on your calendar — we turned on our heat (heat pump) today for the first time as temps hovered in the 50’s.

Can no longer imagine a Wisconsin Winter.
