We saw some really cool windmills - a large gathering of them - would you call that a flock? or a gaggle? Not sure. Good to see someone using alternative energy. Lots of farmland out here. It is beautiful and relatively flat terrain.
We got to the Wisconsin Dells this morning a little after lunch
We decided to skip the campground at the Dells and drive as far as we can tonight, stopping at a rest stop overnight, hopefully in eastern Minnesota. We did take the kids for a 1-hour tour of the Dells, though, and that was nice. We rode in WWII amphibious vehicles called, "Ducks". They ride on the land and then can go in the river also. Very interesting and made for some fun for the kids.
The rock formations are just fabulous to see. The tour guide said the sandstone is only found here, in Wisconsin Dells, in Germany, and Upper State New York (and I think one more place, but I forget). It is very fertile and grows trees all over it even though there is no topsoil. I am reminded that God can take the hardest hearts, the crustiest people, and make them fertile, growing beautifully to benefit others and glorify Himself. Nature is our greatest teacher to point us to Him.
