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)
We use to live just 2 miles from the Wisconsin river - i hated the paper mill up stream ! The fish tasted awful because of the mill run off - hope they have that cleaned up! I think I had mentioned we were about 15 miles north of the Dells. The river is beautiful though!
???Where did you live???
Huh Keetha....Where are the rapids??
I assume the rapids were usurped by the mill - - - not sure.
I was here and now I am leaving evidence of my visit. :-)
Hi Keetha. I posted like I said I would. And I have commented here. Now I will wait for your comment on my post - I am anxious to hear your words of wisdom.
We lived north of Lyndon Station about 5 miles and east of Mauston just off hwy 82, just west of the river. we lived there June 1976 thru November 1980. Went to Lake Placid, NY from there.
