This is the Wisconsin River. This is what makes the quality of life in Wausau, WI . All this beauty is found on the city’s River Edge walkway. I picked a good day for capturing the fall colors here. The cloudy skies softened the light quite a bit and brought out the natural colors of the leaves here. This is a part of Wausau that people might know about, but really do not get out and see.
At any given time of the year, the Wisconsin River offers its own little getaway right here in town! Our city is shaped by this river. In its own way, it brings home the wilderness of the great northwoods of Wisconsin. It brings in wildlife and recreational opportunities. Because of the Wisconsin River, Wausau has a world class competition kayak course. So come and enjoy!
