Wisconsin Underground: A Guide to Caves, Mines, and Tunnels In and Around the Badger State (Paperback)
With the first edition out of print, readers--and libraries--have had to resort to searching for copies online to replace their old, much-used, dog-eared copies. No more. This second edition of Wisconsin Underground provides an up-to-date listing of the state's most publicly accessible caves, former mines, and other subterranean treasures. Whether you are a sport caver, researcher, or vacationer, this guide offers unique travel destinations, suggests possible study projects, and points to both widely known and little known underground locations.
- Updated listings of 44 sites
- 18 new sites
- 14 museums featuring cave and mine replicas and geology exhibits
- 13 sidebars highlighting Wisconsin's underground history and geology, as well as less accessible--yet fascinating--locations
- Directions, precautions, and amenities for all sites listed
This guide offers ideas for travelers who want an unordinary travel experience. While some sites require sure-footedness and an ability to climb scores of stairs, others are accessible even for families with young children. Whether you're ready for a serious trek or a simple peek beneath the surface, Wisconsin Underground can the lead the way.
