Driving The Driftless

White Barn WOW

Here’s some killer shots I took while driving the Driftless Area recently.  On a sunny day, it’s really hard not to take a good picture in this state.  Honestly, it’s pointless in talking about it.  Just look at the photos and you’ll see what I mean.  So I’ll stop babbling now and let you enjoy … Continue reading

WISCO Holiday Inn Express Opening Soon

Wisco Holiday Inn  EXPRESS

Here’s some shameless plugging for my favorite hotel chain, Wiscohotels.com – I’ll be in FDL for the grand opening of their new Holiday Inn Express at the end of April.  Looking forward to checking out their new location, and to get the now finished (minus legal and what not) documentary in front of a crowd. … Continue reading

Outside House On The Rock

HOTR Inn Dodgeville

I shot these quite some time ago, but just found them.  While the interior tour of House On The Rock is used in the documentary (to humorous and a bit eery effect), only a smidgen of the exterior, also an awesome place to visit, is used.  That place just keeps going and going.  Enjoy, and … Continue reading

Snow On Trees (Hey, It’s Winter)

Snow On Trees LD

No words really needed here.  I just find snow on trees fascinating and beautiful.  Trees are awesome no matter, snow on them makes it even better. * * * * * *

Snow Plow Splash

Driving Highway 25 near Rice Lake and happened to get a dash-cam shot of a snow plow doing its job, and splashing my window. * * * * * *

Nice Houses In New Richmond

New Richmond Houses 03

I don’t know why I am posting this other than that I ran across these photos recently and thought what nice houses they were.  Really, this is probably the least important posting ever, but they still are quite lovely homes. * * * * * *

WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) – Music legend Les Paul discovered his penchant for guitar at Waukesha Junior High. It’s where his teachers recognized his curious nature, answering never-ending questions like how electricity got to light switches or why windows vibrated. Now school officials hope Paul’s inspiration and innovative spirit rub…

Yummies From New London

Sara Lee NL 05

Came across these pictures from at least two years ago when I drove through New London at dusk.  I had no idea Sara Lee and Hillshire Farms had such a big pressence in Wisconsin.  But it makes perfect sense since making great food is second nature to us.  Got a pile of brand new photos … Continue reading

Wisconsin Cheese Cow Lexxy’s Day Trip To Ashland

Lexxy ASHLAND 05

My travel sidekick Lexxy (the blow up cow to promote Wisconsin Cheese), always seemed to get the best view of everything.  Ok, just having a little fun with her.  Ashland was definitely my kind of town, and South Shore Brewing my kind of place to grab a great Wisconsin Beer.  Another neat thing are the … Continue reading

Travel Wisconsin “Airplane” Spoof Is A Fun One

TW Airplane Spoof

Check out the new Travel Wisconsin commercial, a fun tribute to the Airplane franchise brought to the world by theZucker Brothers, dear and proud Cheeseheads.  The Zucker brothers were born and raised in Shorewood, Wisconsin, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar played for the Milwaukee Bucks, helping the Bucks win their only NBA championship. * * *   … Continue reading

Winter Sun & Sky

AWE Farm WINTER Sunset

Considering how cold and cloudy this winter has been, thought a few shots of bright sun, albeit low in the horizon and during winter, would warm the thoughts of some. * * * * * *

Harley Davidson Despite The Winter Snow

Harley SNOW 04

I know, we gotta pack the Harley Davidson up every winter and leave it be in the garage.  But you can still stop by the Harley Davidson Museum in Milwaukee in the winter and get your fix.  Here’s a few cool shots from last year. * * *   * * *

Wisconsin’s Very Own Freedom Tower, Well Sort Of

Freedom Water Tower

Freedom isn’t just a word, an ideology, or the name of a skyscraper in New York City, it’s also the name of a small town straight north of Appleton if you’re taking the back roads up to Green Bay.  It’s a fun little town to stop in on, and the local grocer (like every small … Continue reading

The Morgue Haunted House

MORGUE Oneida 05

I know it’s not Holloween, but stumbling upon some fun pictures while driving back roads near DePere, I came across an old school house renamed The Morgue, and took several photos of it.  Interestingly enough, there was also a church right next to it.  After finding the pictures, I looked up what it might be … Continue reading

Blacktop Back Road Beauty

Blacktop 01

Nothing much to say about these shots other than, damn Wisconsin can be beautiful to drive around.  Even the blacktop roads can be a thing of beauty.  Enjoy the summer travel views during this cold winter. * * * * * *
