These photos show Parfrey's Glen in Wisconsin. It really was amazingly beautiful - the pictures do not do it justice. The light and colors were great - filter through woods above. The park is about an hour outside of Madison. The Ice Age National Scenic Trail includes 1,200 miles of trail throughout Wisconsin. I went for about 10 minutes down the trail from the Parfrey's Glen Natural Area. The last few pictures are from nearby Durwood's Glen.
I drove from Virginia to Wisconsin in 2006. During the trip I visited Rocky Gap State Park, Maryland; Coopers Rock State Forest, West Virginia; Forest Glen Preserve, Illinois; Starved Rock State Park, Illinois; and Parfrey's Glen, Wisconsin.
