A little view of Heaven on Lake Winnebago WI

While driving to a local supper club located on the East Shore of Lake Winnebago. (Jim and Linda's) for Prime Rib last night I had to stop and take a few quick pictures along the way. Now I took these with my Blackberry Tour phone so they aren't the best, but I think they show enough of the beauty that I was surrounded by. These were taken on Hwy 55 just before Stockbridge just about sunset. The entire road runs along the Niagra Escarpment and the East shore of Lake Winnebago WI in Calumet County.

That's surprising to find out the lake is so shallow!  I would never have guessed.  Nice pictures and very informative post.

Minnesota seems to be famous for their lakes but one thing I have noticed in the rain is that Wisconsin sure has a nice share of lakes!  Gorgeous views!
