  • …………..The pounding waves at Cave Point County Park in Door County slowly weather the fractured rock of the Niagara Escarpment… It extends from eastern Wisconsin through Michigans Upper Peninsula into Ontario Canada where it is designated a World Biosphere Reserve and on to western New York where Niagara Falls cascades over it giving the escarpment its name…..In Wisconsin the Niagara Escarpment is called The Ledge or The Bluff locally. Beginning with a few isolated outcrops in Waukesha County on the south the escarpment then disappears under glacial sediments until it re-emerges in Dodge County.

  • This comment by “hemp” was in my spam filter, but it’s an interesting description of the Niagara Escarpment from a U.S. perspective. Although it doesn’t have anything to do with the Blue Mountains’ post, I think it’s worth adding to the blog. What do you think?
