In 18 summers of visiting Door County, I was starting to think I'd seen it all. Over the years, I've explored the peninsula by car, on foot and on bicycle, from above the treetops on a zip line and next to a campfire. The natural beauty of the area, though, always played second fiddle to the activities, shopping, good food and great people I've experienced on these annual trips. This year, it was time to put nature first.
