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.

Door County Anderson Dock is located in a quaint little village of Ephraim, Wisconsin.  Ephraim was founded as a Moravian religious community.

White Star Psychic Church Brussels Wisconsin

Today’s topic is going to be a little different.  Something I normally wouldn’t write about, nor would I endorse.  And, SOME may even call me a little crazy for exploring; The White Star Psychic Church Brussels Wisconsin. But life is about experiences. Sometimes, walking in someone else’s shoes helps to understand and relate to someone else. We need this in life.  Who knows, you may even gain knowledge, understanding, peace and even comfort in an unlikely place.  Like this church has done for me.

St Coletta Jefferson Wisconsin

St Coletta Jefferson Wisconsin - Rosemary Kennedy was one of their residents. The St. Coletta Institute for Backward Youth in Jefferson Wisconsin most certainly has left an impact on my heart. They cared for children and adults that couldn't do it for themselves in a world looked upon them differently back in the day.

One thing I absolutely love about traveling is that it provides me with a constant source of education.  Over the weekend, I attended The 4th Annual Spyder Rendezvous in Johnson Creek, Wisconsin with my husband.  Heavy rain prevented me from riding with the group on Friday.  I admit it, I’m a wimp and my dry car provided a comfortable alternative for the day’s travels. I spent some time exploring St Coletta Jefferson 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.

This dwarf iris was photographed in Door County last summer. The Door County peninsula, on the lakeside, grow this iris during the late spring and early summer.  I love to go and hunt them down.

 

If I ever get around to getting my old photo files from previous computer (the hard drive is completely dead) I will upload additional pictures.  If not, there is always hunting them down next year.

Today calls for a visit to Sturgeon Bay lighthouse and the guys hunting grounds.  

My best friend’s mother passed away two weeks ago, on Monday. A high school friend, last week. Then, I read something on Facebook and it triggered a whole world of thought. Of course, a healthy dose of photography therapy was needed.

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 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.
