This is the view outside my room at the Hidden Inn Resort. Niiiiice. I was right off of Wilson Lake, adjacent to both Elk lake and Long Lake.
Here is a cool thing in Price County, WI - the Wis Concrete County Park (this is the cement and bottle part.) This is an outdoor museum, dedicated to Fred Smith. He (back in the early 60's) made tons of sculptures and things out of nothing more than cement and glass. Here are some wonderful pictures from this marvel right outside the city of Phillips.
And as promised - here is the picture of my coworker playing in the sand... err working very hard.
