Apostle Islands, Bayfield, WI

The 60ft high sandstone walls are almost too perfect to be naturally made, but they are, and this is a hidden gem of Wisconsin. This region is filled with 21 islands framed by 12 miles of Wisconsin shoreline and is a stunningly beautiful Lake Superior escape.

The islands lay scattered around off the Bayfield Peninsula. For those interested, organized tours are a popular way to see the islands (and don’t forget lighthouses) without breaking out tent stakes or a sweat over paddling. Also, Lake Superior can be temperamental, so proceed with when it comes to the weather, and bring good maps.

    OMG my school, the Fashion Institute of Technology took us here as field trip, I guess. I graduated in 1979. It was an art history course.
