Update #1 (August 19, 2022)

We'll start the drive at the Kwik Trip #1038 on the corner of Hwy 12 and PF (2850 Prairie Street) in Prairie du Sac (by the airport). We will travel to the World of Dr. Evermore, known for his rare vision in quirky, brilliant, colorful, and mysterious sculptures (drive through the park & explore). He's been featured in countless magazines and newspapers.

Then back to Culver's in Sauk City (716 Phillips Blvd 608-643-6620).

After lunch, we'll wind our way to the Pier Natural Bridge Park (17520 State Hwy 80 - Richland Center, WI 53581 608-647-4673. Pier Natural Bridge Park is located along Hwy. 80 North, at Rockbridge in Richland County. The site has a very unusual geological feature, a half-mile long "finger" of blocked and layered sandstone rising nearly 60 feet above the flood plain of two merging valleys. This narrow finger is topped by tall pines and covered with green shrubs. The West Branch of the Pine River meets with the Main Branch underneath this rock formation, which forms a Natural Bridge. The Park has two historical markers, one indicating the unique rock formation and the other recognizing the significance of the Blackhawk wars in this area. The park has a man-made tunnel which allows visitors to walk through the rock formation to the West Branch of the Pine River. There are also stairs to walk to the top of the rock formation to view the surrounding area. This 10-acre county park has 6 campsites, two shelters, picnic tables and grills, play equipment, and pit toilets. Camping permits may be obtained for a minor fee from the Natural Bridge Store, located next to the park. All camping is on a first-come basis. (Pit stop there as well).

First pit stop will be a pit stop in Plain -2 gas stations for those that need it.

A second pit stop in Loganville (and ice cream if you want).

After that to the River's Edge Pub & Grub, 30 County Road A, Wisconsin Dells (608-253-6600 for dinne.
