Wisconsin – Part III

I have lived in Wisconsin close to 40 years. Most of that time has been spent in whatever local town we were living in at the time. Often we went to Lake Michigan or another smaller inland lake. Door County was also a popular destination. We have driven by Wisconsin Dells and through the town a few times, but had never gotten off the beaten path to discover why it was famous…why it had become a tourist trap. We were pleasantly surprised by what we found.

The only way to see the Dells is on the Wisconsin river. Since we weren’t about to rent a canoe the five of us decided to splurge on a boat tour. My sister, Jill and her husband Dennis were along for the adventure.

My granddaughter, Arianna snapped this picture of the boat. We chose to sit in the open air on top.

At first the scenery reminded us of the hike in Devil’s Lake we had been on the day before.

But then it got more and more interesting.

Twice the boat docked to allow us to follow the trails that wound between the rocks.

There are no words…

My advice in all of this? Look for the hidden things. The things right under your nose. There is always beauty and good hiding somewhere close.

“Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.” Revelation 4:11

    • We never knew they were so beautiful and yet so close.
      I will let Arianna know. My sister gave her an old digital camera to use on the trip. I let her order a photo book of the pictures she took on the trip. It is interesting to see her perspective on what is important.
      Still waiting for your book to come. Amazon says it is on the way. Arianna and I can hardly wait.
