Crawford County draws leaf lookers from near and far


Leaf lookers and photographers had plenty of nice views last week in Crawford County with the fall colors nearing their peak. (Photos by Ted Pennekamp)

With strong, low angled lighting from a setting sun, the colors just popped on Oct. 19.

Contrasts of green and red always look good.

This Green Bay Packers’ fan has a bright outlook.

One almost expects a deer to pop up in this scene as dusk approaches.

Fire fighters, in full fire protection gear, walk among first and second grade students giving high fives and handshakes to teach the students to not be afraid. Five Prairie du Chien fire fighters spent the day going to local schools to teach students about the main themes related to fire prevention and safety. Students learned about fire and carbon monoxide alarms, how to exit homes safely if there is a fire, and how to contact 911. Educators were given goodie bags for the students that contain information about all the themes taught and how to enter into both a written and poster contest. (Courier Press/Melissa R. Collum)
