Day 9: Yet More Wisconsin

I've somehow got to get settled in earlier at night so I'm not writing these in the wee hours of the morning. It was another beautiful day, took loads of photos for the website & Flickr and quite a bit for this here blog as well.

Without further ado then -- since I should really be sleeping.

Here's a pole that really needs removing. The profile shot is better but it's nice to not have to make up for such things.


Wisconsin-ites are very devoted to their cheese. They even have bumper stickers about it:


This tractor trailer sign towers above the interstate near the Mauston exit:


Though this is not really my era, these churches were quite stunning:


A classic, simple and superb sign from just north of the Dells:


This giant guy towers over a flea market. Sparkle provides a sense of scale. The dogs are just visible waiting patiently at the open door for the magic word to go for a run & sniff:


Looking a little road weary at this point (but I bet I look worse):


Here are a couple stunners from downtown Fond du Lac:


A fine looking cleaners from Oshkosh. The plastic sign looks like it's probably a modern recreation. Very cute anyway.


It's starting to get greener and pine-ier as we're heading north. Lots of lakes and streams everywhere which is good news for 'Nik the swimmer of the family. This stairway is near Roche-a-Cri State Park.


  • Are you / have you been able to go through Niagara Falls - there are a lot of cool old storefronts on Main St. Very reminiscent of what you've shot here.
    Nice pic of the slitty-eyed crew. HA!

  • I'm pretty sure I've been all over Niagara Falls. What I post to the blog though is not stuff that I'd put at the website. The buildings I put at the blog are usually older and non-retail-y things.

  • Ha Ha nice shot of the dogs - I love your blog and your pics, thanks for your time and effort.

  • Thanks! I'm pretty exhausted when I write and post these things (after driving all day taking pictures and after posting photos to Flickr) but it's fun to have a place to throw those misc. photos and sum up the day. Glad you like it!
