Congress Hall Canyon, Lake Delton, Wisconsin

The image shows a plank board path further into Congress Hall Canyon, a scenic tourist area of the Lower Wisconsin Dells. The planks are laid down both to guide hikers along the preferred path, and to provide a more stable surface where the ground may be uneven or wet.

There is no description on the back of this card.

The primitive pathways indicate the modest efforts made to encourage tourists to hike in the area. In recent times, to attract tourists, amusement and theme parks have been built which have little or no connection to the Dells.

This card likely dates from the 1940s.
