After the family reunion in Barneveld, WI, we traveled back to Mirror State Park for 4 nights. We met up with Terry & Kirk Atkinson again.

We took the Upper Dells Boat Tour which was great. The tour travels the Wisconsin River above the dam in Wisconsin Dells. We cruised the channel cut by ancient glaciers, passing under pine-crowned cliffs, through the Narrows and past iconic sandstone formations. We had 2 shore landings: Witches Gulch — a dramatic and spooky walk through a passage carved by wind and water — and Stand Rock — a towering pillar of sandstone that’s home to the famous “Leaping the Chasm“, which a dog reenacted for us.

We had dinner and drinks at Tumbled Rock Brewery & Kitchen – Fantastic drinks and food. Highly recommend it. Pam and Terry fell in love with the “Champane Cosmo” and it huge gobble style cut glass.

We had lunch at the Ravina Bay Bar & Grill. The setting was beautiful and there was a bald eagle flying overhead, but the food was just okay.

We had dinner at Ishnala Supper Club and it was fantastic (again). We took inspiration to make and test Old Fashions with 4 different alcohols – Ishnala Brandy, Christian Brothers Brandy, Cognac and Burbon. All were good.
