On my trip to the House on the Rock, I stayed at the Governor Dodge State Park. It’s an interesting mix of prairie land and woodlands. I did a couple of hikes.
Stephens Falls is a beautiful spot. It’s down in a gorge right in the middle of the upland prairie. It was named after the family that farmed this land before they donated it to the state.
Here’s a spring house that they used for refrigeration
This is the path down into the gorge. Stone steps, thank Goodness there’s a railing.
Then I went on a walk to find the Lost Canyon. It too is a lovely scenic spot.
This State Park is nearby several places of interest. (I don’t like the term tourist attraction) The House on the Rock, Taliesin which is Frank Lloyd Wright’s home, a folklore retreat, and it’s close to Wisconsin Dells.
Southern Wisconsin is delightful. Rolling hills with farm fields stretching to the sky is the scenery.
