Madden’s Memories 2011

22 Sep

We have just over one month left in our season. We’re starting to get a little sad! Madden’s is not only a job we come to each day, it is our passion! For me, Madden’s main blogger, this summer was just plain fun! I got to do nearly everything around the resort plus some! I’ve flown in two airplanes (a seaplane and a biplane)  in my short tenure as our blogger. I’ve taken gone on the Gull Lake Water Expedition, taken a ranch tour, gone horseback riding and trap shooting. I’ve been able to hone my photography snapping shots of families, kids playing at Adventure Cove, and some awesome landscapes and flowers. There is so much more I”ve done, but I don’t want to bore you. I’ve decided to share some of my favorite pictures and one video to give you a glimpse into my summer as the Madden’s blogger.

Enjoy, Elizabeth

A bee enjoyed the Liatris flower even more than I did.

At Madden's we can make anything happen. A group requested a path of American flags to guide their guests to event destinations.
