It’s fall, so that means pumpkins. Here’s a killer pumpkin patch and maze just outside of Rice Lake. Espcecially neat is the pumpkin tree that had to be at least sixty feet high. * * * * * *
On a follow up visit to Janesville after the Lombardi Dedication night event we encountered a bit of September rain and it made for a beautiful day. Janesville is such a sleepy town despite it size, with pleasant neighborhoods, and a gorgeous riverfront. The pictures tell the story much better than we can so we’ll … Read more

Door County in the upper penninsula North of Green Bay is one of the most visually arresting and surreal places throughout the entire state. Being that the entire county is surrounded by water, it is also heavy on the maritime elements that Wisconsin is (not so) well known for, including the Maratime Museum, and luxury … Read more
And so you don’t think we are ignoring rural Wisconsin in the least, we went to a Bluegrass festival on a farm just outside Mondovi a while back and found that, despite the humidty, the horse flies, and heat, it was quite a bit of fun Wisconsin country style. We also got to meet up … Read more
We went by the Rhinelander County Fair last week in order to see how the Northwoods people do it, and they certainly do it their own way. It was like being in the woods, but with ferris wheels and carnival games, and of course Hodag’s hiding in the trees (more on that later). It was … Read more

We wrapped up the May segment of shooting in Green Bay at the Green Bay Cellcom Marathon, where the last mile of the marathon enters in, circles around the outside track, then exits back out into the parking lot of Lambeau Field. What a way to end a good long run. It was a cold … Read more

How far away is Bayfield? Just far enough. Far enough to let you escape from strip malls. And drive-thru meals. And 3pm budget meetings. And all the other hassles, hype and “have-to’s” of everyday life. Here, stress and schedules just sort of drift away on the sun-kissed waves of Lake Superior. And you can relax and … Read more
