Book Across The Bay
February 18, 2023
Book Across the Bay is the upper Midwest’s most unique winter event, open to skiers and snowshoers of all ages and ability levels. The 10-kilometer course, which is groomed for both classic-style and skate skiing, starts in Ashland and ends in Washburn, and follows a route not on land, but over the frozen surface of Lake Superior, the world’s largest lake. The event is held at night, and the course is lit by the stars above and up to 1,000 candles in ice luminaries that line the entire route.
Located in the Northwoods of Wisconsin is a unique, eccentric and eclectic glass blowing studio owned by the Vojacek family of Finnish descent. This is not your "run of the mill" studio. The outside architecture of the buildings gives you the first clue. Then, entering the work room we were greeted by Jim who was teaching his Grandson some glass working techniques. Watching them was a treat-passing down to another generation such a special art. Entering the display area was "at your own risk"-crowded with shelves of glassware and a cat climbing the ornament covered Christmas tree!, it was hard to see everything. Open by appointment in mid winter. Classes in glass blowing and demonstrations also available throughout the year.
