On The Road Friday

Many of you will start to plan summer outings. If you plan a trip to Wisconsin this summer, you might want to check out Roche-A-Cri State Park.
We visited last summer, on a hot humid day. We hiked way up to the top of a 300 foot rock, and were blessed with an amazing view. Click below for more information.

Native American petroglyphs are one of the attractions at Roche-A-Cri State Park.
The name Roche-A-Cri comes from the French, and it refers to the 300 foot high rock outcropping that is the central feature of this quiet park.  

 Historic Graffiti
I wonder if my boys will show 2013 graffiti to their grandkids on our bridges, train cars and buildings and call it historic. ;-)

 In 1861, Company D of the Wisconsin 1st Cavalry Sharpshooters camped on this spot. The circular pock marks on the rock face may have been made by bullets fired at the rock during marksmanship trials held by this unit.

 Welcome to Roche-A-Cri State Park

 Yes, this climb is strenuous. I am not use to 303 steps! 
It was fun to yell at the top "We made it!"
We visited on a hot and humid day, the storm clouds began to form in the distance.
Taking in God's creation!

Thank you for coming along with me today to Roche-A-Cri State Park, Wisconsin.

Have a great weekend.
