We actually spent part of several days in Devils Lake State Park. On the first day it was mainly a drive through although we did stop in a prairie area to take a few photos. While walking through the prairie I found this beautiful grass.
The next day we met friends from Menomonie who had moved to Madison. We were a little early so I wandered over to the lake to look around. I was surprised to see that the boats were still out and available for rental. It was a nice warm day for the end of October and there was a kayaker already out in the lake
When our friends arrived we decided to hike the trail along the bluffs. Most of the fall leaves were down but there were still a few patches that offered some interesting color.
Although it was supposed to rain the sun was still out when we reached the rock outcroppings near the top of the trail.
The Oaks, Sumac and grasses offered some really nice color at the top of the bluff. It looked like rain was approaching so we took the easy trail back to the car and then headed to Baraboo for lunch.
