Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center

 The Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center is just outside of Ashland.  It is a cooperative center run through the partnerships of multiple organizations.

They have a large property with trails to explore.  There is also a pond with some fish to feed.  We also found a giant turtle in the pond!
 Climb the observation tower for this awesome view!

 Be sure to walk through the interactive museum inside as well.  It's all about the history of the region, including the native heritage, the mining industry, and the fishing industry.  You can even try your hand at the detonator in the mine.

If you are in the area, this is a great place to stop and get some good information.  This is where we learned of the Powwow we attended while we were up there.
