Capturing A Moment In Time

A Road Less Traveled

So Close...Yet So Far...

Caught Moitionless, As We Breathe In Mother Nature's Beauty, That Which Surrounds Us.

Couldn't Resist A Quick Cast In To The Stream!

A Moment Of Rest

The Journey Continues...

On We Go...

Where Are We? To Think This Is So Close To Us Here In Serene Wisconsin!

A Closer Look

It is very easy to forget how much beauty there is all around us.  Life moves at a lightening pace, years passing by in an instant.  Sometimes all it takes is a closer look to gain a new perspective.  Trout and I try to help eachother remember that as much as possible.  Simple pleasures like the scent of fresh cut hay, or the sounds of a gurgling stream, or the wind whistling throughout the trees…these are the memories that we remember later on. Thanks for joining us on our journey.

Thanks for checking out these pics of the amazing landscape of the South Western Driftless Area in Wisconsin.  Have a favorite Pic?  Let us know!  Feel free to contact us at:

Lucky To Have A Father Like You!

Father’s play a very important role in their children’s lives.  For some they are the most important person in their lives, and for others they may not be present in their life at all.  It is in keeping with this spirit that I must give my hubby Trout MaGee a tribute on this special day of the year. 

Happy Father’s Day to you and all Amazing Father’s out there.  After all he plays and loves and laughs and hugs and protects and supports and devotes his time happily to our kids every single day.  He provides an amazing example to our two children.  It seems one could only wish for a dad like this one!!

Our kids are lucky to have a Father like you, MaGee!!

Here is an Ode to Trout MaGee on Father’s Day, featuring some of my favorite stuff from his creative mind:   

Our Kids, Ocean and Sephora relishing in the huge catch their Dad just reeled in!

Bonding TimeA Father’s Dream- Fishing with his son.  Teaching him some of his skills!





Knowing his daughter’s love and fascination with Toads and Frogs, Trout MaGee loves surprising our daughter with a little guy just for her to check out. Then we let them go “back to their family” until Dad’s next surprise find.  She gets so excited!  It’s little things like this that separate the good from the great Father’s.




Garbage Picking on Earth Day

Trout MaGee is great about taking the kids out on Earth Day and Cleaning up our local roadways!  Back Road Cruises are always better without litter everywhere, not to mention teaching our kids the importance of keeping our landscape clean and healthy for the environment and the natural wildlife, so that our Grandchildren can Fish and enjoy the very same Streams, Rivers and Country Back Roads that we are today!

Trout MaGee will also carry his kids across Streams, cause that’s the kind of Father he is!

So to Trout Magee and Great Fathers everywhere thanks for the powerful impact you are creating for your own children!  With Father’s Day approaching, this is the perfect time to let your Dad’s know how much you care,  and you can make sure to show your appreciation for all of his hard work, dedication and most of all his unwavering love!!!

Where Ever the Road May Lead Us…..

Here are some pictures taken while driving along on a Southwest Wisconsin highway/back road.   Sometimes we need to just slow down and take in the beauty of what we seem to fly by at 60 without even batting an eye at what we are missing. 


Barn's are disappearing , it is always great to see some still standing.


I grew up as a boy on a dairy farm.  It was owned by my Grandfather and my Dad helped out with the running of the farm.  I always loved watching the fields come to life as the summer began.  Old country roads where the fields were 360 degrees.







One of my favorite reasons to take a sweet country back road, is to get to some of the finest trout fishing in the country.  Wisconsin’s Driftless Area is known for its plentiful streams full of Brook Trout, Brown Trout and Rainbow Trout.  Some of my favorite fly fishing spots are those on some gravel road in the middle of who knows where. 

This blog will be all about what is up around the bend for us.  Where ever the road may lead.  We will be posting about all the different things we encounter in search of that next beautiful back road.   Orchards, Dive Bars and Restaurants, Hiking, Fishing and everything in between.  So make sure to check back in and see where the back roads will lead us Drifters to next…….??????????

First Post Ever for Trout and Bird!!

This is just a quick post of a sweet back road near the Pine River, Wisconsin.

Please tune back in to see some beautiful things that we discover as we travel the back roads of The Driftless Area.
