    On June 7, 2007 Bear Paw Outdoor Adventure Resort in White Lake, WI was totally destroyed by an F4 tornado. It wiped out all the beautiful trees there and all the buildings. I am just so glad I wasn't there because I was there with my bf kayaking the week before and I was so shocked when I heard the news. The place is just not the same anymore with all the trees gone, but my bf and I love kayaking, so we still go up there every year.

    This stripped tree with all the kayaks in it is there today as a monument to the horrible devastation this tornado caused.

    If you ever get to Wisconsin, the Wolf River up there is so beautiful for white water rafting, kayaking, canoeing, and tubing. Going up there is the highlight of my summer vacation. If you ever get to Wisconsin, check it out. It's a nature's paradise, if you aren't in a tornado lol.

    This is Bear Paw's website, but there are a lot of other places where you can stay and rent rafts and kayaks etc.:

    If you don't know how to kayak, they have some great instructors there and hot ones too. icon_lol.gif

    I think we have a travel and fitness section for this.

    However, I'll consider hitting it up since I'm moving to Minneapolis this summer. Thanks, bud.
