A Balancing Act at Devil’s Lake State Park

Winter is upon us here in Wisconsin and the thing that drives me crazy is that the snow here is perfect for snowboarding but there are no mountains! Elevation is something that is devoid in Wisconsin.

Devil’s Lake State Park is Wisconsin’s saving grace. The park is blessed with a scenic lake and 500-foot bluffs. It is these bluffs that provide excellent hiking and rock climbing opportunities. Along the way are some unique geological formations.

A short but steep hike will take you to one of those unique formations. Balanced rock has defied logic and the harsh Wisconsin weather. That in itself makes it worthy to photograph.

The fall colors peaked already by the time I got to the park, but you can see there was still some remnants of color.

The rock wasn’t the only one with a balancing act as I precariously walked toward the edge of the cliff to compose this shot.

Happy Travels!
