Grassy Island Lighthouse Range Green Bay

Grassy Island Lighthouse Green Bay Wisconsin Great Lakes

Grassy Island Lighthouse Range Green Bay

Grassy Island lighthouse range used to be north of Green Bay, Wisconsin.  The range was relocated by the Coast Guard Station in Green Bay, next to the Yacht Club grounds.

The grounds are off limits to the public but the public boat launch is right next door.  Excellent view of the lighthouse, Leo Frigo Bridge and sometimes even freighters coming in at sunset can be seen from this location.

This print of the Grassy Island lighthouse range Green Bay was taken at sunset from the water.   The print has a soft pastel glow to the sky and breakwall of the Yacht club along with a few boats can be seen in the background.

The print would make an excellent addition to any lighthouse lover’s collection.

VIDEO Bairds Creek Green Bay Early Spring

Bairds Creek Green Bay in early spring.  Early spring; the snow has melted and the creek is running fast. The rebirth of the year.  All the plant life and animals are waking up from their winter’s nap.

The creek flowing is one of the seasons first promises that spring is truly on its way.  Let my path walking and hiking adventures for the season officially commence.  Bringing the promise that plenty of nature will be caught on camera this year.  The excitement awaits.

Enjoy this short video.  I am not an excellent videographer. Matter of fact, my teen told me I have much to learn and practice.  No plans on breaking out into the video business. Thinking we are all safe.  I enjoy sharing little pieces and parts of what I see.  Even if I stink at it.  I’m sharing.  I shall take the free advice given by my teen and build from it.  Maybe, I shall get better.

Canadian National Train Bridge

Canadian National Train Bridge

The Green Bay, Wisconsin Canadian National Train Bridge located in the middle of the Fox River. The bridge is moved by the railway operators when a train needs to cross the river.

We spend plenty of time on the water during the summer.   I have shots up for sale in my Fine Art America Storefront for The Leo Frigo Bridge, The Grassy Island Lighthouse Range, and an entire album just dedicated to Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Fonferek Glen Waterfall in Summer

Fonferek Glen Waterfall in Summer

Having some fun with my daughter! We love exploring together. Today’s exploration is Fonferek Glen Waterfall in Summer.

Location:
Fonferek’s Glen Falls and Park is located Ledgeview, Wisconsin. Four miles South of Green Bay, Wisconsin in Brown County.

Background Information:
This waterfall was created by Bower Creek tumbling 25 feet down the Niagria Escarpment. That cliff, called the Niagara Escarpment, is a geologic formation that runs hundreds of miles through the state of Wisconsin and beyond, forming a great circle all the way to Niagara Falls at the New York-Canada border. At Fonferek GLen enjoy a limestone- walled gorge with a stone archway.

Directions:
I-43 South Milwaukee exit to County MM exit. Right onto County MM. Right on Memory Lane. Follow the gravel road up and park up by the barn.

We put together a little video for those that may want to see the waterfall but can’t make the trip.

Additional Interesting Midwest Locations:

Bairds Nature Preserve After Winter Storm

Bairds Nature Preserve After Winter Storm

Bairds Nature Preserve After Winter Storm

I’m NOT a winter person.  I don’t like shoveling. I dislike wearing white, chalky salt on my shoes; as well as on every piece of clothing I own.  I’m sick of my fingers and toes aching from temps below 30 degree F and I am tired of the thick, black lines of mascara running down my cheeks from my eyes watering from snow blindness.

Lambeau is Peaceful at 11 at Night

Lambeau Field is Peaceful at Night

Lambeau is Peaceful at 11 at Night

Last night I was a little restless. When I get antsy at night I have to get out and do something. Some people go to the gym, maybe dancing or go out for a drink. For me, I start looking for something to photograph. Lambeau is Peaceful at 11 at Night.

I had heard that one of the side construction walls at Lambeau had come down and revealed a pleasant surprise. With that information, I decided to head out and see what all the fuss was about.
