Rocky Arbor State Park, Wisconsin

We are enjoying our stay at Rocky Arbor State Park, 
located just north of the Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin.
The park was established in 1932 to protect sandstone outcrops
eroded into picturesque walls and ledges.
The Wisconsin River once flowed over this tract of land,
carving channels into the sandstone. The river has
since changed course, now running 1.5 miles to the east,
leaving the rock walls of its former gorge exposed.
