Ashland Wisconsin, this is where you can find these fine murals on the brick walls of a few of their downtown buildings. Aren't they absolutely stunning? I don't think that you find anything like these murals anywhere.

I wish that I had asked if the murals were likenesses of former residents or if there were stories behind each mural.

During our stay at Ashland, we camped in a city park that had RV connections. The campground was right on Lake Superior and it cost a grand total of $6 a night. I could throw a rock out of the back window of the 5th wheel and it would land in the lake: We were that close.

One of the best bargains on our trip. We stayed three nights and had dinner on two of those nights at a wonderful restaurant. It was one of the best and one of the reasons for us to stay for as long as we did.

I'd live in Ashland but can well imagine how very cold it gets there in the winter as the north wind blows off of Lake Superior. As they say, there's no place like home.

Hey Dad, I just looked up some information about these murals, and yes they do represent people who previously lived in the Ashland area. They're new murals too, painted between 1998 and 2005.

They're really cool to sit and study. The paint they've used must be of high quality because none of them look any worse for the wear - - - winters on Lake Superior are killer for paint jobs.
