(Ron Writing) This afternoon we left Superior heading east on WI-13. Highway 13, also known as Wisconsin Lake Superior Byway, Wisconsin’s newest scenic byway, winds along the south shore of Lake Superior. It is a good paved road that passes through heavily forested land, a few small and unincorporated towns, and some lakeside resort towns. It was a beautiful drive. There is a bridge closed between Cornucopia and Red Cliff so we had to detour on County Road C to Washburn and then continue north on WI-13 to Bayfield, WI. Bayfield is the most notable resort town in this area and serves as the primary access point for the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore.

We stopped by the visitor information office in Bayfield to pick up some information about this area and then took a walk around town.

We are spending the night in Bayfield.
