Good morning from High Cliff!

High Cliff State Park is only about nine miles from where I've grown up, but I can count on one hand the times I remember going there. And until yesterday, I hadn't ever walked any of the trails. I went in the morning and had the whole place practically to myself. Spring is finally in full swing.

Red Bird, chief of the Winnebago tribe, overlooking Lake Winnebago.

High Cliff sits on the Niagara Escarpment, hence the bluffs over Lake Winnebago in a predominantly flat part of Wisconsin. It's the same long geological formation of limestone that provides the bluffs for Niagara Falls.
