Dells of Wisconsin River is a glacially formed gorge with striking sandstone formations along the banks of the Wisconsin River. The vertical rock cliffs were shaped by strong currents of water from melting glaciers. In 1886 Photographer Henry Hamilton Bennett invented stop action shutter. Bennett photographed his son Ashley jumping 5 ½ feet from Standing Rock to a ledge and back to show how shutter freeze action works. We witnessed a German Shepard reenact the leap on our tour. The town of Wisconsin Dells is a midwestern tourist destination.
NEW GLARUS, WISCONSIN:
New Glarus in southwestern Wisconsin is a village known as America’s “Little Switzerland”. Swiss settlers established New Glarus as a Swiss Colony in 1845. Many buildings are in the Bernese Mountain design with white plaster foundations, brown stained wood siding, geranium filled flower boxes, and intricately detailed interior woodwork. We went on a search for Swiss chocolate and Swiss cheese!
