E.T. Phone Home

About 60 miles east of downtown St. Paul, MN lies a small rural town named Elmwood, WI.  Dan and I have traveled through this small town many times on our photography excursions. As with any small town, there is some story that surrounds the town history.  Elmwood, WI has its own special history and it has to deal with little green men and shiny round discs. The town is the home of several reported UFO sightings since the 1970s and embraces its otherworldly connection. In 1978, the town started celebrating UFO days; at that same time, the UFO sightings stopped.  The annual celebration includes food and beer tents, a UFO medallion hunt, and a parade.  For more information surrounding the UFO sightings in the 1970s, please visit UFO Evidence.  As always, in Elmwood, WI all are welcome (human and aliens alike).

Please enjoy the images from in and around this small rural community.

    These are truly wonderful Cynthia! I think my very favorite is the close up of the cow with the barbed wire but they are all terrific. Loved the UFO story 🙂 Your barn shots are great also. Really nice work

    What a great set, Cynthia. I love the symmetry of the Auditorium image and your cows and barn shots are terrific. And, the flying ears on your pup really made me smile! 😊
