Up North

Zachary and I went camping at Copper Falls State Park this weekend. The park is located in Northern Wisconsin near Mellen. We did some hiking, taking in the waterfalls on Saturday. There are a lot of fascinating rock formations in this region, creating some dramatic landscapes.

After exploring the trails and sights, we loaded up our backpacks and made the 2 mile hike to our site for the night. It is a single site off the North Country Trail that is very secluded and located on a stretch of the Bad River. Above the sun was rising over the river valley where our campsite was this morning.
Enjoying the sounds of a rolling river.
On the drive home today, we stopped at the Wisconsin Concrete Park. We were puzzled at first, "Concrete Park?" So I insisted we had investigate. It was the home of the artist Fred Smith, beginning in the 1940's till he passed away, he created concrete statues that were decorated with paint and glass. The grounds had statues all over the place. Much to Zachary's chagrin, here is Zachary posing with one the statues.
