This place is so so scenic and natural, untouched with any iota of artificiality. You want to take some timeout from all that’s happening around – Go there!!! You wont regret it a bit. The surroundings are so much at harmony with each other. Water, Rocks, Trees, Sunshine, Rain – this place offered everything it had when we went there… and all for free – unconditionally free (With this economy – anything free is Good — but this was BEAUTIFUL). I love finding and visiting these place which are on their own and worth a find and they leave an impression of their being for a lifetime.This is exactly how I’d describe Cave Point (Door County, WI)
It offers one of the best views (I must admit that I have not seen the others) of Lake Michigan.This place can be missed very easily as it is not much talked about – it was suggested to us by a cashier at a local gas station in Door County, WI. We went with the suggestion and followed all the directions we were given to see this AMAZING PLACE!!!! It made our labor day vacation a real memorable one.
This was one of those perfect days which was unplanned and unpredictable.
A lazy sunday afternoon where you want to be out of the house – but dont know where to go. So we hop into our car and then just go for a long drive and take a few turns and find ourselves at the Minnehaha Falls. This place is in the heart of the city and very very beautiful – just like 15 mins from our house! So – not really a long drive huh 😉
As soon as you reach here – you want to be a part of this place. You either start walking along the trail or just just stand still and admire the beauty of this fall. If you remember to take your camera or are lucky to have your camera with you – you will keep clicking….By the time we finished walking the trail and took photos from all angles possible…we realised this should be done more often and no matter how long you have lived in the city – if you begin to see it like a tourist, you’ll see it in a new light!
Interestingly Minnehaha Falls has a meaning to its name, I just came across it on the famous Wikipedia and here it is… While the name is often translated as “Laughing Water”, the correct translation is “curling water” or “waterfall”. The name comes from the Dakota language elements mni, meaning water, and ȟaȟa, meaning waterfall. Thus the expression “Minnehaha Falls” translates as “Waterfall Falls”. (thats our learning for the day! 😀)
ever had a hot cup of coffee by the lake? or took a nap under the warmth of the sun? or ever been with nature – far away from the noise of traffic and pollution? these are not to miss things in life and things that money can’t buy! (no this is not a mastercard ad)… for me being with nature is a therapy – a sense of being and where you let your inner silence do the talking.
