In Wisconsin, that is…..while I was there we went over to Chippewa Falls, a town next to Eau Claire. They had the most amazing park!
It is called Irvine park. It is full of animals, and places to picnic and hike, and it is all free!
These photos are from their website…it was packed the day we were there…
These are my photos….
This poor guy behind me was already panting…but they have water to cool off in…
There is a tribute to Old Abe….
He was a Eagle that was the mascot of a troop in the Civil War…
when we left, we went by Leinenkugels Brewery….
What a beautiful place…..another nice little park.
I took this photo and then saw the same identical view on one of their national ads……
here is a photo of an original barn on the property and some of the old buildings….
Right across the street is an old corner grocery store….
another wonderful little piece of history.
We also got this photo, after seeing it on Pinterest I wanted to see if the sign was still there….
this is a motel that is on a hill that overlooks the town of Chippewa Falls…
Linda and mike are going to see if they can get a photo at night….
This part of the country is so appealing to me….I just love the small town feel and the friendly people!
This is my cousin Mike on his riding lawnmower….this man is busy sunrise to sunset….not bad for 70 years old!
I will be checking in with a visit to a WONDERFUL farm next…have a great week!
