Ashland, Wisconsin

Our day trip from camping at Copper Falls included several stops around Ashland, Wisconsin.

Located along Lake Superior this quaint town loves it's murals.  We caught about half of the 16 murals of their artistic trip through Ashlands history. Here's just a few.

It was Saturday so we walked through the farmers market and found some unusual delicacies to try. Since the Foraging Program, these caught my interest, now I'm willing to try just about anything.

I've heard about it through the Tent Show Radio programs, now we actually got to go to it. Big Top Chautaugua. Kinda sounds like She-talk-Wa.

We caught the free matinee offered on select Saturdays, enjoying an energetic drum and dance group from Milwaukee called Ko Thi Dance.

The venue is located at the local ski hill. Here's an added bonus on display. A birch bark hut.

BTC has been around for 30 years bringing many big name performers to the area like Lyle Lovett,  Buffy St. Marie, Emmy Lou Harris and Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.

Check them out if you're in the area.

 Always impressive are the Visitor Center provided by the federal government. A must see the Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center has some great exhibits, many theater films and impressive displays.

Plus a fun gift shop. I collect magnets, this one was especially fun, kind of like a snow globe with water in it.

Our day finished with a stop at the Deep Water Grille for some bar food and beer tasting at the South Shore Brewery.
