The One Place In Wisconsin That Looks Like Something From Middle Earth

Wisconsin is one of the most geologically interesting states. This is because it was greatly affected by the Ice Age some 12,000 years ago. Many ridges formed between two glaciers. The result: supremely incredible rock formations along the western part of the state especially. Some of the most beautiful parts of Wisconsin are right near Baraboo. But the most stunning is a little place known as Pewit’s Nest. Many people don’t know this place exists, and we kind of like it that way. It looks like something out of Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings. It’s magical, and it just doesn’t seem real. So you really need to check this place out.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
