Minocqua, WI

A few weeks ago, in Northern Wisconsin, leaves were still on the trees but snow was in the forecast. In this part of the country the lakes can freeze over for the whole winter. This old trestle was part of a network of railroads that allowed you to get in and out of Wisconsin’s Great Northwoods in the early 20th Century. My first encounter with this area was by train when I was 4 years old. The “Night Train” from Chicago brought to this spot as this trestle was the end point of the trip and the town of Minocqua was just on the other side.
