Welcome to, On the Road Friday.
Today we are heading out on a hike to Morgan Falls and St. Peter's Dome.
We took this hike in October, when Wisconsin was showing off her lovely Autumn colors.
Morgan Falls and St. Peter's Dome are located on the western end of Penokee Range.
In 1984 Congress considered the area for designation as a wilderness. In the end Congress directed that 900 acres of the St. Peter's Dome area be managed as a special area.
St. Peter's Dome or Old Baldy is a red granite formation that rises to an elevation of 1,565 feet. There is a brass US Geological Survey marker embedded in the rock at the top of the dome.
We found the US Geological Survey marker.
On a clear day you can see Chequamegon Bay of Lake Superior and the Apostle Islands.
The hike to St. Peter's Dome is 3.6 miles round trip.
The trail has some moderately steep climbs.
Taking a snack and water along is a good idea.
Wisconsin's Autumn color was just starting to peek the October weekend we took our hike.
The hike has several roots of trees to watch out for.
The roots of the trees become steps during a steep climb.
Morgan Falls cascades down a canyon wall.
Morgan Falls is beautiful. It is a unique feeling because you are right in the canyon.
Morgan Falls and St. Peter's Dome are just another many wonders of Wisconsin.
Thank you for taking the trip with me today, On the Road Friday.
Have a great weekend.
