Rhinelander Wisconsin - Home of the Hodag
Betcha don't know a Hodag - or maybe you do! He's the scary guy in the picture, no not him, the green monster. Contrived in 1893, he later became the mascot for Rhinelander Wisconsin. They have a huge Hodag Country Music Festival there in July. The beautiful dome is from the Rhinelander courthouse. Just love Courthouses. I always take pictures of them if I get the chance. Oh, I Almost forgot why we went up there. To visit McNaughton Wisconsin and see where my grandfathers old cabin use to be. It wouldn't have been a proper trip if we hadn't stopped at some of the watering holes while we there. Not sure but I think we might have made the bartenders day. Mom and Di had a blast visiting all the old place they vacationed at as little kids. We even got to do some junking while we were there! Di picked up a beautiful pair of Lefton wall Cherubs, you can check them out in her store if your interested.
