Natural Wonders in Wisconsin

Day 54: Exploring Wisconsin Caves
Sometimes I impress even myself. With almost no effort to speak of, I’ve uncovered further proof that Wisconsin is the Origin of Fun. Today I took a guided tour of Cave of the Mounds, located in Blue Mounds Wisconsin. This national natural landmark has been deemed “the significant cave of the upper Midwest,” and I should say so! I saw a most amazing array of crystal formations alongside the lighted cave pathway: stalactites, stalagmites -- all present. To think, the main cavern began forming over a million years ago as acidic water dissolved the limestone bedrock. And seldom have a million years been better spent! I heartily encourage you to discover this treasure for yourself. Cave of the Mounds is open year-round for tours.
