We travel to far northwest Wisconsin, spending Labor Day weekend at Amnicon Falls State Park (POTA K-1436). Unfortunately a heat wave gripping the midwest follows us north. Will we escape the heat, or will Lake Superior fail to cool us down.

Amnicon Falls State Park, near Superior Wisconsin features a geologic anomaly called the Douglass Fault. More than 500 million years ago, ancient basalts pushed upwards and broke through the younger sandstone, creating a rift. It is most pronounced at this point along the Amnicon river where you see the black volcanic rock above the falls and brown sandstone below it.

As a bonus, patrons can view the full, unedited phone contacts for this Parks on the Air activation. Visit my page on Patreon for details: https://www.patreon.com/kb9vbrantennas

I do return QSL, if you made a contact with me and would like a QSL, please send me one. Return postage not necessary, but always appreciated. As they say, KB9VBR is ‘good in the book.
