Wisconsin River in Autumn is pretty....one of my favorite times of year to cache, too.

This puzzle needs no explanation:

http://www.jigsawplanet.com/?rc=play&pid=329139837b91

It is also a vertical (portrait) puzzle, and it is showing up as that. I didn't do anything special to get it that way. I did not use a huge file size of the photo, though. More experimenting to come...

Boy, is trying to do that ducks puzzle sideways ever weird! And my research has come up inconclusive. I made two portrait puzzles, one normal and one close to the website's limits in size. I did not make them the same, but the larger one took much longer to load... but it still ended up the right way. So I don't know what happened to the ducks.

And I don't know how Labrat got that photo from the top of the mound at Roche-A-Cri. It is a well-known fact that it always rains (or snows) when he visits Sandland! Wink



Here's one more puzzle... a photo taken on the Juneau County forest trails south of Highway 21 on County M west of Necedah. We were doing the Bucky Badger series placed by slbens:

I remember that series. I got a bunch of FTF's there. Of course it was snow-covered when I did it. Laughing

We made several trips there... winter, then spring, then three times in the fall. Stayed away from the summer mosquitoes!

This one I call Blue Ribbon Sunset because it won a blue ribbon at the Central Wisconsin State Fair last fall. It's really a sunrise taken from the deck in my back yard.

We had the good fortune of catching quite a bit of color when we were in the Hayward area last fall. Tagalder Trail is north of town and west of Highway 63.
The road crosses the Namekagon River and then continues west... past the locations of several caches. Just two of many "purdy" spots to visit.

TAGALDER TRAIL (150 pieces)

Puzzled by a puzzle. Pat, I tried your daisy puzzle. I can't even get the border together. There are two lower right hand corner pieces. Is this some kind of trick?

The DAISIES puzzle in my folder on the website is one with rotated pieces (the little puzzle piece diagram in the lower right corner of the puzzle pic is at a slant). It is 90 pieces, and with the rotation, that makes it a lot harder. You can rotate pieces by clicking on them and then hitting the left or right arrow keys on your keyboard... or something similar.

The DAISIES link I provided in the TS thread earlier is straightforward and is only 49 pieces. Here's that link again:

I hadn't registered on the site yet when I was making up all those earlier puzzles.

Not fair! And no mint chip! Mad


Try this 100-piece beauty of the tree across the empty lot behind us. Those were the real colors that evening.
