Just west of Wausau there are several Amish/Mennonite communities. I often see horse and buggies or kids riding their bikes to school. I makes me remember how much I like electricity, but how at the same time I admire the simplicity of that lifestyle.
Close to Eau Claire (where I went to college!!) is Chippewa Falls, WI. Chippewa Falls, WI is famous for many things- but most importantly- Leinenkugel's Beer. It is soooo good! Creamy Dark is my favorite. Bonus point for you movie fans- Name the movie in which the lead character was from Chippewa Falls, WI and mentions Lake Wissota. Hint- The actor was nominated for 2 Golden Globes this year (didn't win) and the movie is the highest grossing of all time. Just for my friend Carla- PANERA!! My favorite place for WiFi and lunch.
And for my friend Lindsey. Check out this freaky mural at the Benjamin Moore store in Chippewa Falls. I think that's a rooster on his lap.
One more photo. I know what this sign is trying to say. But it's a classic example of small town signage.
