the bluff scarred yet beautiful
bedraggled columbine hanging red
i must weep for very life
The Lower Narrows is a gorge in the Baraboo Range, an ancient mountain range exposed by erosion as a series of monadnocks composed mainly of Precambrian Baraboo Quartzite and rhyolite. The Baraboo River exits the range thru the Lower Narrows.
I climbed the nearly vertical mud path barefoot in the rain up thru part of the dry-mesic forest, huddled under an old water-resistant blanket. Communion.
Thanks to the Wisconsin DNR for keeping this land.
