The Devil's Lake Bluffs, you can make out the boulders that cover the sides. Rattlesnakes in the area! However there are paths to the top and I have made the climb many times.
Glacier action broke up the granite and gouged out the lake in the area. Major glaciation swept south of here, nearly to Illinois border. There were volcanoes in Wisconsin, diamonds are still found, but the volcanoes have long been ground away by glacier!
At Wisconsin Dells, river winds south from here. Lots of indians in the historic past here, many different tribes. They were shipped to Nebraska and when that failed, small number of them lived south of Dells. Two hour boat tour, 20 dollars.
Many dams on this river, lot of fishing in the area below dams.
