We stopped in Ashland, Wisconsin. Ashland is on Chequamegon Bay in Lake Superior. We are really in northern Wisconsin. This is a great town. They even have special signs to mark ATV Routes.
Isn’t this a fun town! The city has encouraged mural art. The murals on buildings are huge. Look at this one honoring the US military.
We think it is great! This entire block is a mural of a city.
We think this is a wonderful idea. This Ashland Railroad Mural
is perfect and it is located across from this engine.
When this engine was built by the Baldwin Locomotive Works of Philadelphia, it was the world’s largest steam locomotive. It weighed 190,000 pounds. Steam operations were concluded in 1954. This engine was donated to Ashland in 1956. And it is big! We are in Ashland in October, and there are many cute Halloween decorations around town. This was at our hotel.
Driving through town, we admired this display in someone’s yard.
Isn’t it cheerful? The bank must not like this man.
Perhaps bank robbers will be hanged. Check out this lady on the street.
She leaves us speechless. Unusual signs catch our attention. The fish is bigger than the boat.
We love it! Ashland has beautiful old stone buildings. We like the old architecture.
This is Our Lady of the Catholic Church. Remember Ashland is located on Chequamegon Bay, a part of Lake Superior. From this pier we see the mouth of the bay opening into Lake Superior.
This park is an ideal location for a picnic.
What a beautiful view! Another pier so you can take your boat into Lake Superior.
The people of Ashland were very friendly and there is so much to see and do here. We hope you visit soon. We like Ashland!
