Travels With My Sister

Yesterday I spent again with my sister the sister. We traveled north from Madison to Durward's Glen, a favorite picnic spot for our family many years ago. It hold special memories for some of us siblings.


It is a small but interesting slot canyon carved by the action of a creek. At times, with sufficient rainfall, the creek becomes not at all gentle but rather a raging destructive force.


From there, after a quick lunch break, we hopped over to Pewit's Nest, another Wisconsin natural area. Often during the week there is no one there, but yesterday there were a number of young adults and kids, some of whom entertained us by climbing the chasm walls and leaping into the only pool of water deep enough for such activity.

Making the Leap

I was a bit jealous and wished to join them, but I was not dressed for remaining wet for the rest of the day. Another time, though, I will do so.

  1. Thanks for the wonderful location tips. I am slowly finding all the lovely out-of-the-way hotspots (cool spots?) in this area - someone recently pointed me to Gibraltar Rock.
