For this trip, I entered Oconto County from Marinette County on US 141 South, then turned to the west on County M in Oconto County, then headed north on County B to Lee Lake Road. I took this landscape shot somewhere along that route, taken by the wavelike motion of the land and also taken by how green the vegetation was.
This landscape shot was taken on County Z very close to Hickory Cemetery Road just before coming to Suring. It was a marvelous day, and this open landscape shot, like the previous one, nicely reflects the Central Plain Geographic Province in this region.
But let's return to that first photo, where we were on Lee Lake Road.
Shortly after turning east on Lee Lake Road, I came across this dig in the Town of Brazeau, just south of Rost Lake. I present this photo to give you a good idea of what they mean when they say this region is dominated by the Northeast Sands of sandstone.
Here's a nice view of Rost Lake. She runs from about 10-30 ft deep and is said to have Bluegill, Largemouth Bass, and Northern Pike. We indicated earlier that this section of the Central Plain Geographic Province was the lowest in the province. The lake is only 791 ft above sea level. It is a seepage lake, the most common type of lake in Wisconsin. A seepage lake has no inlet or outlet, but instead is landlocked. The principal source of water is precipitation or runoff, supplemented by groundwater from the immediate drainage area.
I walked around the lake a bit, saw this, and took the shot. I wish I were an artist. My bet is a good one could have fun painting these forms.
The lake is surrounded by this kind of landscape, again undulating land.
