Spirit River and Flowage

The Spirit River is a tributary of the Wisconsin River with headwaters in Price County to the northwest. Its source is Spirit Lake in Price County. It flows nearly west to east.

Spirit Flowage near Tomahawk

There is a dam close to her mouth which forms the Spirit Flowage. The river flows out from the dam a short way to meet the Wisconsin River.

This is a shot downstream the Spirit River after she flowed through the dam. It is amazing how tranquil the river gets shortly after leaving the dam.
