Somebody from my high school "era" has found my blog this week. I KNOW you've found me because my site meter shows blog hits from Wisconsin Rapids.
Oh PLEASE, OH PLEASE, OH PLEASE leave me a comment and let me know who you are!!!!
While we're on the subject of Wisconsin Rapids, let me talk about it just a bit. It gets its name from the fact that it's situated on one of the rapids in the Wisconsin River.
When I lived there, people who didn't know any better, used to try to tell me it was Rapids, Wisconsin. I guess they thought there were just too many Wisconsins in my address. But NOT - - - it IS Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin.
It's a paper mill town. You can SEE the mill in this photo, but oh that you could SMELL it too!!!!! I shan't give you a description of that aroma here.
Don't know which section of the rails this is - - - but what a pretty shot.
Lake Wazeecha. My sister and I used to drive out to this lake to swim in the summer. I thought I was going to drown there once - - - but I guess that' a story for another time.
(I got all these photos from City-Data.com)
