Check out the following website for some history about Copper Falls. It is a beautiful park. It has deep gorges, spectacular waterfalls and log buildings built in the 1930's by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930's to add to the charm of the park.
Mining history is all over in that area of Wisconsin. The Penokee mountain range travels through Wisconsin.
Check out the following website - an article from backpacker magazine. It is a great article explaining the mountain range of Wisconsin.
Yes, it is true. If you look real close...yes...that is snow in the gorge. We had okay weather on Saturday, we had light rain in the morning, but cleared by evening. All day we had a strong wind. Yes, it was a bit chilly. We had our winter hats and mittens. We were fine. Our excitement was to see the falls in full power. Because the snow had not all melted, you know we got to see a great rush of water.
SNOW! May 15th 2011.
Tuesday May 10th - Mellen received 65 to 67 mile hour wind. Trees were down all over. I will be posting some of the damage in my next posts featuring Copper Falls State Park.
Copper Falls is 29 feet. The park got its name from the falls.
