GEOLOGY DOES NOT TELL THE ONLY STORY:
“According to American Indian legends the Wisconsin River was created by a _________or _________, which took form of a _________ _________. One day the ________ traveled from his home in the great forest to the sea. While crossing over the land he made a groove that filled with __________. _______ arose from the grooves of other ___________that fled in all directions fearing the ____________. At the Wisconsin Dells, large rocks blocked the great________ path. He pushed his head into a crack and split the stone apart. The __________ continued on, but became tired. As he rested and rolled around, he ___________ the river channel.”
From the plaque take a 40 degree compass reading and find a piece of rusty steel at the top of the rocks. Take 10 paces left along the upper edge of the rocks. Look under a large triangular shaped boulder that’s pointing to the bridge.
(Note: Please be extra certain that the box is snapped shut tight! With your help we’re hoping it lasts and everything stays safe & dry! Updates will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!)
