I Am Boulder Junction: Our fans’ responses (part 2)

By Alan Hamari

We just wrapped up our recent I Am Boulder Junction Sweepstakes (congratulations to Nancy K. of Evanston, Ill., who took home the grand prize!) and were thrilled to see so many great responses from locals and visitors alike. Here are some (more) of our favorites:

Becky V., Ashwaubenon, Wis. “I love to ride our bikes on the bike trail—blacktop, woods, flowers, lakes, what a view. What more can you ask for!”

Giana G., Des Plaines, Ill.: “Being in the Northwoods is my therapy—it makes me feel at peace with the world, and getting back to nature and away from everyday life in Chicago a few times a year is exactly what we need. My favorite place in the world isn’t on a beach by the ocean but in a kayak on a rice creek. Or on a hike through the woods. Or on a boat listening to the loons, hoping for a musky.”

Heather M., Madison, Wis.: “The outdoor world takes my worries away with one deep breath in.”

Wade N., Long Lake, Wis.: “There is nothing but great food, fun and people here to make your time special.”

Sherri M., West Allis, Wis.: “I am a Northwoods girl at heart! I love all the outdoor activities to do up here, including cross-country skiing to bike riding on the awesome bike trails! I love shopping at all the cool stores and the awesome swap meet at the park! I also relish the quiet, serene time I spend at or on many of Boulder’s great lakes! And all the wonderful restaurants and wildlife just add to my time up here!”
