"On Our Way to Bayfield, WI......."

As some of you know, Don and I drove up to Bayfield, WI for a few days. This was a "scenic spot" prior to entering Ashland, WI, which is on the southern shore of Chequamegon Bay in Lake Superior. In this photo, you can barely see the opposite shore of the bay, along which we would soon be driving to arrive at Bayfield.


This was taken as we arrived in Ashland, WI, a town on the southern shore where iron ore was loaded onto freighters and shipped across the Great Lakes and further abroad. The last standing shipping dock is seen in the background.


This is what is left of another shipping dock.


A closer photo of the old shipping dock.......


On the opposite side of Ashland, the Northern Great Lakes Visitors Center was a stop we decided was needed. It has a viewing deck that "called" to us........


The bay is out there in the background, barely seen on the horizon.

An inland view from the visitors center........


The trip photos continue tomorrow with our arrival in Bayfield.
