Morgan Falls is one of my favorite places where magic lives, hidden away in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest, near Mellen, WI. It 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, fairies or 'little people' you surely find them there. It is an easy, short walk from the parking lot along Morgan Creek.


The next place to visit is St. Peter's Dome.
There is so much to see on the 45 minute hike - moss covered rocks, tree roots, little streams and creeks. My favorite time to visit this beautiful place is in the spring as the whole forest floor is carpeted with various wildflowers like Dutchman's Breeches, Merrybells, Trilliums etc. 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.
