17 Insanely Beautiful Photos Of the Northwoods Of Wisconsin That Will Make You Want To Visit
Ah, the Northwoods – tons of lakes, a more laid-back attitude and the kind of peaceful relaxation you look forward to during a particularly stressful work week.
Whether you’re a winter fan who heads up to the the trails on your snowmobile or a summer person whose cabin is for soaking up the sun, fishing off the pier and dangling your toes in the water, the Northwoods are some of the prettiest, undisturbed parts of the state.
I can just close my eyes and imagine a cup of coffee in an Adirondack chair and the sounds of the wildlife waking up around me.
When you're far away from the city lights, the sky becomes a show of the best and brightest our galaxy has to offer.
There's an eerie sort of calm with the fog and the lone loon crossing Little Martha Lake.
I'm no great lover of the cold or snow, but there's something refreshing if not bracing about an early morning walk in fresh snow as it sparkles on the branches and you spot fresh animal prints as you go.
The colors all just seem more vivid and everything feels a bit more alive Up North.
The Chequamegon National Forest is the perfect place to reconnect with nature and be reminded of how small we are in the big, vast world.
Not only is the sound of a waterfall relaxing, but seeing the power of years of running river water is always a bit fascinating - and humbling. Copper Falls is always gorgeous.
The perfection of the lake surrounded by the changing colors make this feel like a picture out of a catalog.
I sort of love how I know I wouldn't see anything like this elsewhere in the state. It feels like there's so much potential here just waiting for the warmer weather to wake up.
When the sky and water merge so much that you don't actually know where one ends and one begins, you know you're seeing something special.
I've always found something so starkly beautiful about a forest in the winter. There's so much happening we can't see and in a few months this view will be unrecognizable from how it looks now. These trees are dealing with the flooding of Blockhouse Lake.
This pond on the Mosquito Brook in the Phipps Flowage near Hayward kind of looks like it could be from a Scottish storybook. The fog just adds to the ethereal beauty.
A lush, green forest is gorgeous all the time, but especially in contrast to the bare trees we saw before.
Being away from the bustle of the city and your everyday life certainly enhances the natural beauty of the Northwoods, but the skies sure do put on a show at sunrise and sunset.
The swirling clouds, the crystal clear lake reflection and the glow of the sun all combine to make this gorgeous Northwoods view.
The barely restrained power of the river as it cuts through the rock and helps nourish the surrounding trees is really glorious to behold.
