The trip to Copper Falls State Park is certainly worth it for photo opportunities and hiking.
The park is very modern and offers food and beverages in the clubhouse. There is camping available and the views of Copper and Brownstone Falls are worth the relatively short and easy hike. Photos cannot truly do justice to the steep gorges in the Falls area.
Go to Washburn which is a town close to Ashland and try the best sausage in the whole world that's homemade. Trinko's. It's off Highway 2 and 13 heading towards Washburn. The phone number is (715) 682-4470. But they are only open during certain months of the year. They make specialty sausage out of Venison that hunter's bring in for their own orders, etc. The best you'll ever taste anywhere guaranteed. And Tetzner's Dairy Farm on the same road, with the freshest best tasting milk you'll ever drink if ya never lived on a farm. I hated milk until I moved here and tasted Tetzner's milk. Now I'm an addict. The only person I know that can finish drinking beer and then head straight for the milk.
It's unusual to see a "Queen Anne" style building executed in stone. This one dates from 1889. I particularly like the decorations above the 3rd floor windows.
This is the old Masonic Temple, now home to Woods Drugs. I wonder what the purpose was for the "eyeglasses" on the corner tower?
This is an example of the "Empire" style - influenced by contemporary French stylings - with its classic Mansard roof.
