Category Archives: Riecks Lake

Last fall my wife and I decided to take a drive down to Perot State Park to check out the fall colors. It was overcast when we left home but was supposed to clear later in the morning. As we neared Alma, Wisconsin the sun started to peak through the clouds.


We decided to stop at Riecks Lake Park to see if there were any Tundra Swans around. Back in the 90’s thousands of Tundra Swans stopped at Riecks Lake during their fall migration. Unfortunately the lake silted up and their food supply disappeared. I’ve been to Riecks Lake many times and have yet to see a Tundra Swan. This day was no exception.


However the sun peaking through the clouds made for some great fall color photos with the lake in the foreground.
