Rock art at roche-a-crI
Come see ancient carvings (petroglyphs) and paintings (pictographs) at the foot of towering Roche-a-Cri, a butte that rises from the flat sands of central Wisconsin. Take pictures of thunderbirds, canoe-like crescents, turkey-tracks, humans or “bird-men,” and other designs that cover a sandstone wall in a quiet park. Gain an understanding of the age and meaning of Wisconsin rock art and appreciate the difficulty in preserving these sacred sites. For more adventure, climb to the top of the rock to look out for tens of miles in all directions.
