Wisconsin Fall Colors


Monte and me went to Wisconsin for a few weeks. Got to watch the progression of their fall colors. Monte grew up in Wisconsin and his mom and two brothers are still there. Monte's family roots homesteaded in Ogema Wisconsin - and the Swan Christmas Trees are famous! We visited family and also went for Monte's high-school reunion (I won't mention year). It was a combination of years for the first group of kids to have started at this new high school in a suburb of Milwaukee. And our sister-in-law grew up, never leaving till college, Wisconsin's little Washington Island - access only via ferry. So here's a stream of photos I took.
