4th of July Continued

One thing that is very noticeable when driving in the countryside in northern Wisconsin is the brightness of the green.  There are certain trees and undergrowth that are such a bright green they almost hurt your eyes.   They almost look like lime green.

Driving back to Superior along Highway 2 we spotted this view of the Apostle Island offshore and a condo or apartment complex.

We crossed the Iron River and all the water in Lake Superior around that area was rusty colored.

We passed through a little town called Port Wing and they had a very nice display reminiscent of the late 1800's.
The first school bus in Wisconsin.

A replica of the old-town jail.

The jail was about 12'x15'.

This is a sled used to deliver mail in the snow.

This is the little red schoolhouse.  

The schoolhouse was locked so we could not get in take photos but they had a replica of the layout of the town on display.

This is the first 4th of July that we have truly have been able to enjoy the festivities outside.  The weather was perfect and we had a fantastic time.
