Morgan Falls and St. Peter's Dome

A favorite place of mine hidden away in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest, near Mellen, WI.
Morgan Falls is the state's second highest falls (70 ft) and tumbles down a rock face in steps. It is an intimate place and if you believe in trolls or 'little people' you surely find them there.
On St. Peter's Dome the world opens up. A clear day reveals Lake Superior and the Apostle Islands 20 miles to the north. The top is 400 ft above the starting point. St. Peter's Dome is a granite dome created during a billion-year-old mountain building phase that saw huge fissures open in the earth's crust. Molten rock welled up from the mantle, forming features like St. Peter's.
I like to visit this beautiful place in spring as the whole forest floor is carpeted with various wildflowers like Dutchman's Breeches, Merrybells, Trilliums etc. This year (2008) everything is 2-3 weeks behind.
