We’re Still in Wisconsin

And here’s the proof.


We visited Cave of the Mounds. Contrary to what you might think, the mounds are not piles of cheese, nor are they candy bars with coconut inside. The mounds are the remnants of mountains from something like a gazillion years ago.


Nice formations in this active cave, but no bats. The cave system had been completely sealed off until about 50 years ago when the landowner blasted a limestone deposit and found the entrance to the cavern.  A sealed cave means no bats.


The owner apparently realized that tourism has more earning potential than lime, and the rest is history.



Tomorrow we’ll be doing laundry, then it’s off to Minneapolis, Fargo,  and points west, so it will be a few days until I post again.
