This drive through Wisconsin's Northwoods begins in Bayfield, perched on Lake Superior. Heading south, silky-smooth roads cut through forests once logged nearly bare but now nurtured, as densely green as they ever were. Pack the kids' gear to hike or ski the woods, listening for bird calls. Fish or kayak the waters—eagles may join the family. Ojibwe culture reveals time-honored ways to respect the woods while living in them. The Northwoods offer stops where everyone wants to get out of the car. The journey ends in Eagle River, nestled among a 28-lake chain.
