A Winter Drive Over A Winding Road

Light flurries dust the sky but don’t stick on a mild Wisconsin winter day on Highway 42 near Gills Rock, in Wisconsin’s picturesque Door County peninsula. The famous winding road, designed by famed landscape designer Jens Jensen, weaves a path through a snowy patch of woods near the tip of the peninsula, near the Northport pier for the Washington Island Ferry.
