After having lunch with our friends my wife and I decided to drive over to Gibraltar Rock. Gibraltar Rock is designated as one of the Wisconsin State Natural Areas and offers spectacular views of the Wisconsin River Valley and Lake Wisconsin. At the top there are some nice Red Cedar Trees that are twisted and bent. They offer some nice foreground when photographing the river valley.
The radar showed that rain was moving into the area. When we left Baraboo there were some dramatic clouds. It was a race to see if we could get to Gibraltar Rock before the rain. We made it to the parking lot and loaded up our gear for the hike to the top. Just then it started to rain so we walked back to the car and unloaded our gear. Then the rain stopped so we decided to make a run to the top.
Unfortunately the fall colors were past peak and the dramatic skies had been replaced with a grey overcast. I still managed to get in a few photos before it started to rain forcing us to make a hasty retreat to the car.
