Port Wing: A Village in Wisconsin
Port Wing is a small village on the southern shore of Lake Superior. Once a thriving brownstone quarrying center and logging port, the town is today a small unincorporated district with a population, at the last census, of just 368 people. This film records a tranquil weekday morning in and around Port Wing on a sunny June morning in 2015.
(If you are interested in the history of Port Wing, take a look at David Paul's video comparing the 1899 map of the village with recent satellite images. You can find the video at )

The Streets of Solon Springs (Solon Springs, WI)
The northwest Wisconsin village of Solon Springs is best known for its location on the western shore of Upper Saint Croix Lake. And then there’s Lucius Woods, the campground just uphill from the beach, and the Lucius Woods Performing Art Center.
That’s all well and good. But apart from the lake, the fishing, the boating, and all the tourist attractions, Solon Springs has small-town charms all its own. So please enjoy this tour up and down a few of the quiet, tree-lined streets of Solon Springs. As a bonus, you’ll also get a taste of the trails in Lucius Woods Park.
Later, be sure to check out my other videos showcasing Solon Springs and Upper Saint Croix Lake—including drone videos, plus videos of homes I’ve recently listed or sold in Solon Springs.

Episode 7: Bayfield County Wild Talks with Chad Abel About The First Tribal National Park
On this episode of Bayfield County Wild, as Co-hosts Nancy Christopher and Mary Motiff, director of Bayfield County Tourism, speak with Chad Abel, Division Administrator of Natural Resources for the Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa. They discuss the first tribal national park in the country, located at Frog Bay, as well as area events in the month of March.
Legendary Waters Resort & Casino
Legendary Waters is one of the most appropriately-named destinations you can find. Owned and operated by the Red Cliff band of Lake Superior Chippewa, the entire experience and view for visitors is truly “legendary.” Located on the shores of Lake Superior in Red Cliff, this hotel offers 47 deluxe rooms and premiere suites, each with a Lake Superior and Apostle Islands view. Even the casino has a view! This is a rarity, as most casinos in the United States don’t even have windows. The annual Pow Wow in Red Cliff features drummers, singers and dancers along with vendors selling traditional food and arts & crafts. Check travelbayfieldcounty.com for future dates, and visit the Native American Tourism of Wisconsin website (NATOW) for details on proper pow wow etiquette.
New Apostle Islands Coin
Over the last few years, the United States Mint has been producing quarters that highlight different national parks. It’s exciting to announce that the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore is being honored with such a coin! There will be a forum for coin collectors at the Northern Great Lakes Visitors Center in Ashland on Tuesday evening, April 10th and the official quarter launch and coin exchange at Legendary Waters Resort on Wednesday morning, April 11th. Further information can be found at travelbayfieldcounty.com.
Frog Bay Tribal National Park
Chad Abel shares his involvement with the first tribal national park in the country, Frog Bay Tribal National Park. Frog Bay is a pristine, undeveloped area on the Red Cliff Chippewa reservation. Though not affiliated with the National Park Service, the tribal national park title refers to the sovereign nation of the Red Cliff Band of Chippewa. This designation protects it from future development and provides public access to a portion of the park.
Located a few miles from Legendary Waters Resort & Casino on Frog Bay in Lake Superior, the park opened in 2012. Originally just a 90-acre parcel, it grew last year when another 87-acre parcel was acquired (the only remaining private property in Frog Bay), along with 80 acres that Bayfield County was using for timber management. In total, Frog Bay Tribal National Park is now approximately 300 acres with two miles of walking trails.
Balancing Tourism and Protection
With so much natural beauty in Bayfield County, it is a big responsibility to protect. Mary explains that there are many laws in place for the protection of Bayfield County’s natural resources, and that Bayfield County Tourism balances nature and tourism every day. Bayfield County is aware that its natural resources draw people from all over the world, and local residents want to continue to protect these assets.
Marching Into Spring
You may be thinking spring, but celebrate winter with one last “hurrah” in Bayfield County:

March 9-11: Hot air balloonists from Wisconsin and Minnesota come to participate in the Hot Air Balloon Rally, raising money for the Cable Area Lions Heart Benefit.

4 Trails 2 Minutes | Mountain Biking | Marquette, Michigan
Summer’s arrival in Marquette means nearly 16 sun-soaked hours of daylight on Lake Superior’s southern shoreline. For us, that means 960 minutes a day to explore the over 100 miles of carefully crafted mountain bike trails packed with bar-dragging berms, stomach dropping rock rolls, and more features found only in Marquette County’s glacier-cut landscape. Need proof? Here’s four unique trails in two minutes. Now what will you do with the other 958?
Riders: Evan Simula, Neil Washburn, Nic Dobbs, Jeremiah Johnston, Phil Ott and Anders Tvedten.
Produced by Aaron Peterson/aaronpeterson.net
Song: Violent Young, by The Analog Affair via The Music Bed
Marquette County, on Michigan's Upper Peninsula, is a designated Ride Center of the International Mountain Bike Association, one of only 27 in the world.
As of October 2014 the Noquemanon Trails Network of Marquette County has:
48 miles of cross-country mountain bike trails mapped and signed.
17 free ride mountain bike trails.
1 flow trail.
1 dual slalom course.
1 technical legacy trail.
80 wooden structures (system wide)
More berms and jumps than we can count.
NTN trails traverse 3 rivers, 5 creeks and take riders to 7 vistas.
In the nearby towns of Ishpeming and Negaunee the Range Area Mountain Bike Association is rapidly signing and mapping its sprawling 43-mile system of classic hand built mountain bike trails in the rugged hills where American iron mining was born: The Marquette Iron Range.
Five miles north of the city of Marquette an endless backwoods adventure of rowdy rock rolls and near alpine conditions challenge advanced riders along the spines of the ancient Huron Mountains at places like Harlow Lake, Sugarloaf Mountain, Bareback, McLovin and Top of the World. A community group works closely with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources to maintain the rugged, natural character of these trails.
During the winter, trails groups and volunteers groom and maintain an every-expanding system of snow singletrack for fat bikes, or snow bikes, as we like to call them. These winter bike trail networks are some of the first, and best, in the world--luring industry heavyweights like Trek, Specialized and 45North to test and develop products for this booming segment of the bike industry.
