Northern Wisconsin with Zeb and Soapy Smith Duck

We drove across a bridge from Duluth, Minnesota to Superior, Wisconsin.   When mom and our cousin, Eider Duck’s dad were kids, they used to vacation in Northern Wisconsin.   We are crossing northern Wisconsin, heading toward Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.   Just before Michigan, we took highway 51 south.    We passed by, and drove on, so many quiet roads like this one.

Here you can see that the leaves were turning colors for autumn, but they were not yet at their peak color.

A little north of Tomahawk, we turned on a small road that partially circled a calm lake.

This is the lake mom and her brother visited as kids.   Isn’t it a beautiful place?   Was great for kids to learn to swim and handle small boats.   Here we are sitting on logs.

This is what you would imagine for the forests in the north woods area.   Wisconsin is not all woods though.   This is a Wisconsin farm.   Remember, Wisconsin is the Dairy State.

Isn’t this pretty?

We saw so many scenes like this.   The tall trees and a lake.   We love the reflection of the trees on the still water of the lakes.   Another typical scene driving down most roads in Northern Wisconsin.

You can see the leaves have started to change colors.

On this quick tour of Wisconsin, we drove from Superior east to highway 51 near the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.   Then south to Tomahawk.   A little west and drove on highway 13 back to Ashland, located on Lake Superior.    We loved our drive through Northern Wisconsin.   We hope you like it also.
