    Thanks so much for the beautiful photos.  I have wonderful memories of camping at Copper Falls many years ago.  

    It's hard to pick the worst of the damage done by Walker's rogue administration, but despoliation of this gorgeous state after decades of environmental stewardship has to be right up there.  The corporate buy-off of Wisconsin's resources has become so blatant and egregious that I was moved to write some new lyrics for UW's fight song: On, Wisconsin ---  

    "On, Wisconsin, Green Wisconsin,
    Gorgeous Badger State.
    Wetlands, oak groves, lakes and rivers
    We appreciate (And protect!)

    Wolves and whitetails, mallards, muskies,
    Sand hill cranes so grand,
    We, Badgers, for our state
    Must take a stand.

    Green Wisconsin, proud tradition
    Celebrate the earth
    Gaylord Nelson, Aldo Leopold
    Showed us our state’s worth (Preserve it!)

    Hunters, fishers, hikers, sailors
    Pleasures close at hand.
    But, only when we act
    As stewards of the land."

    Someday soon, we may need photos such as yours to remind us of what we have lost and what our children and grandchildren will never have the opportunity to experience.
