Explore Wisconsin

Wisconsin has an interesting history.  The state holds the oldest Belgian community. Beautiful hiking and biking trails that pass limestone cliffs and use underground tunnels. Plenty of places for an outdoorsman to explore.

The state is home to lighthouses and unique plants that grow along her shoreline.  Hidden roadside parks that hold waterfalls are wonderful treasures for those that explore.  Small lakes with excellent fishing and an abundance of wildlife along their banks.

The posts are places I have been and photographed.  If I have any tips or information on the location, I share that too.
