Wisconsin and Minnesota photos: 2004

Click on the small picture to see a larger, more detailed version. I toured the Green Bay, WI area, traveled to Duluth, MN and then toured that area. The trip was led by Jan Hansen (dba Otus Asio Tours otusasiotours@bellsouth.net). Jan leads a variety of trips, all of which I would recommend.
