Witches Gulch

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 1 October 2015 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Highlighted by beauty and shrouded in mystery, Witches Gulch captures the essence of the Dells' abundant scenic treasures. A leisurely stroll along the boardwalk may prompt thoughts of how this narrow canyon must have formed over time, with its layers and layers of sandstone. Witches Gulch is a fantastic display of nature's fury forming in just a few weeks or perhaps even days.

Here a few crepuscular rays shine through the gulch near the entrance and took everyone by surprise by this heavenly sight. The foggy day provided the perfect mix for the sun shining through.

Photo captured August 7, 2015.
