On our way home from the conference in Minnesota last week, we spent a couple of days in the area of the Wisconsin Dells. On Sunday, we drove through the town of Wisconsin Dells, to get some information on things we might want to do during our short visit. We picked up information on the Upper Dells Boat Tour, but it was pretty cold and dreary that day. We thought we'd come back the next day to do that.
You can see from the following picture of the Kilbourn Dam how dreary the day was:

So we decided to make Sunday's activity a visit the Natural Bridge State Park, not far from where we were staying in Baraboo, Wisconsin.

It's a pretty drive in the country, going to and from the Natural Bridge State Park, as the route takes you past many beautifully kept Wisconsin farms. On our way back to town after our hike, Doug spotted one farm that had a round house:

One of my favorite things we did on this trip was to visit a sanctuary that is home to pairs of all 15 of the world's species of cranes. I'll share some photos from there on my next post.
