Where Has Russ Been

Hey All, here is an update on where I have been traveling.

 

From Prarie Du Chein To Superior Wisconsin, a 300 mile 2 day road trip chasing cooler 70-degree weather.  I headed north from the Mississippi River to Wisconsin Point and Lake Superior Port Enterya dn State Line. I explored the Fort Crawford Museum plus Historic Downtown and Spend the Night at the Sportsmen Unlimited RV Park and campground.  On Day two I traveled north stopping at Lock and Dam No 9 plus historic Ferryville along the way.  

Wisconsin Scenic Byway Highway 13 Road Trip.  The Wisconsin Scenic Byway Highway 13 journey from Superior to Sand Bay encapsulates the essence of Wisconsin’s natural beauty and cultural heritage. Beginning in the historic town of Superior, travelers can enjoy the scenic route that winds alongside the sparkling waters of Lake Superior, offering breathtaking panoramic views of the world’s largest freshwater lake. As the road meanders southward, it passes through charming coastal communities, Like Herbster, Cornucopia and more each with its own unique character and stories to share. Along the way, I explored hidden beaches, historic lighthouses, and quaint fishing villages.  The Wisconsin Scenic Byway Highway 13 promises an unforgettable journey that captures the heart and soul of this remarkable region.

Bayfield Wisconsin Road Trip, along Highway 13.  Embarking on a journey along the beautiful Highway 13 Scenic Byway to Bayfield, Wisconsin, is a treat for the senses. As you drive, the road hugs the Lake Superior coastline, offering glimpses of the glistening waters. The route is lined with forests and wildflowers, painting the landscape with vibrant colors. Just before reaching Bayfield, the marine museum and harbor come into view, adding a touch of maritime charm to the trip. Once you arrive in Bayfield, you’ll be greeted by historic downtown buildings that exude character and a welcoming atmosphere. The Highway 13 Scenic Byway not only leads you to Bayfield but also lets you experience its marine heritage, picturesque harbor, and the timeless appeal of its downtown area.

Ashland Wisconsin Historic Downtown Murals Nestled in northern Wisconsin, Ashland’s downtown district exudes charm and history. Amidst its old buildings, colorful murals grace the streets, vividly depicting the town’s heritage and natural beauty. These artistic gems, painted onto weathered facades, invite visitors to explore Ashland’s narrative, offering a vibrant fusion of art and culture amidst the scenic backdrop.

Historic Ironwood Michigan Depot Museum. I made it to the Michigan State Line. I checked out the old museum and drove through the old downtown, of an old mining town Ironwood, Michigan which was settled in 1885 and incorporated as a city in 1889. The city was named after James Wood. The discovery of iron ore mines in the late 19th century led to the establishment of Ironwood. The city’s population grew from 7,745 in 1890 to 15,739 in 1920. The last iron ore mine in Ironwood closed in 1966. The Gogebic Range was once home to a thriving deep-shaft iron mining industry. Iron mining peaked in 1920 and ended in 1967. Many miners moved to work in copper mines in Ontonagon County. Most of those mines closed by the mid-1990s. The Ironwood Area Historical Society works to preserve the history of Ironwood. The society uses collections, archival research, and community outreach to pass on the Ironwood story to future generations.
