I'm so happy with myself that I didn't make the photo guess from Monday easy. It's a turtle nest found along side of a railroad track. The eggs were soft shelled and so very neat to see. We looked for turtles but none where in site. There was a small stream running along the track. The nest was about nine inches deep and there were several eggs outside of the nest in addition to the two found inside.

No one figured out what yesterday's photo was. Although, someone was close. OK, I'll give two more nature photos today.
This looks like a bunny stamp to me.
This has to be the easiest of the three. It's a giveaway really.
Hopefully someone will be able to figure out yesterday's nature photo.

We attended the first game of the NFL season. The first game is always at the home of the previous season Super Bowl champion. This year, for the first time in NFL history, the past two Super Bowl champions played in the opening game. Another NFL tid-bit, Green Bay is the smallest city that has a NFL team. Anyone that
loves likes football has to go to a game at Lambeau Field..
We saw the Packers, along with 70,555 fans, beat the Saints. The game went down to the final play. Thankfully, the Packers stopped the Saints on a goal line stand preventing the game going into overtime.
We didn't have any "official" Packer clothing but I was able to find some green!

There were signs inside and outside of the stadium welcoming the fans "BACK TO FOOTBALL."
If I remember correctly, there were 70,555 in attendance.
I've always enjoyed watching the fans in college stadiums use the colored paper to write out messages. It was new to me that this is done for NFL games.
"GO PACK GO"

Mick got a surprise when he asked what I wanted for my birthday & I requested he take me on a hike. Mick doesn't like "roughing it" outdoors.
He went above & beyond and found a cabin to rent for Labor Day weekend and we spent two days hiking. We were in Northern Wisconsin & it was beautiful.
Another couple came by at the end of the trail & volunteered to take our photo. I was in the process of setting up the timer and finding a place to set the camera so I was thrilled to take them up on their offer.
Mick took the below photo along the waterfall at the top of the trail.
I was told by one of his co-workers that Mick said he enjoyed our hikes. Maybe a tent is in our future.
