We are on the road again! It’s my favorite place to be and I certainly want to savor this fairly short trip because it basically marks the end of my travels in America. Not because I don’t want to travel here anymore, but because this trip includes the last attractions in America that I feel are must-sees. In addition, this trip will complete visits to the entire 50 states for both Lee and I. We can finally check this item off on our bucket lists!
As we drove across the state of Wisconsin, we decided to break up the journey by stopping for a short while at Wisconsin Dells, the state’s number one tourist attraction. The entire area is extremely honky-tonk, with every type of kid activity imagineable. An example is the photo below of a venue called Top Secret, an elaborate set in semi-ruin.
What we decided to do here was take a one-hour boat ride on the Lower Wisconsin Dells of the Wisconsin River to soak up the ambiance of the region. Unfortunately, we were terribly disappointed. Although the sedimentary rock formations along the riverbank are interesting, there were very few of them on this trip. We saw Hawk’s Bill Rock which does resemble the head of a hawk (see top of promontory below).
Grotto Rock features several river islands.
Two perpendicular formations represent was are called the Ink Stands.
The Wisconsin Dells are certainly a scenic region but we are not sure it was worth the money.
