Sugar Bowl, from Up River, Dells of Wisconsin The Dells of Wisconsin are a wonder, whimsical creation of nature. One may wander through miles of caverns, crevasses, chasms and grottoes, cushioned with multicolored mosses, festooned with ferns, vines and silver birches, made musical with the ripple of tiny cascades, or one may pass by the most astonishing and grotesque rock formations on the deck of an elegant steamer, seeing here an imposing cave, scooped out by the hand of nature, and there a fantastic rugged column left standing by the rushing, grinding waters. The Sugar Bowl with the Inkstand and the nearby Cave of Dark Waters are an especially charming group of wonders. And every one of these landmarks has its legend from the time when the Wisconsin was a great artery of pioneer traffic and travel, and the Dells were the meeting place of trappers, missionaries, traders, adventurers and Indians.
