Baxter's Hollow Preserve

Baxter's Hollow Preserve, originally uploaded by jw_creations.

"Baxter's Hollow features a scenic gorge cut through Baraboo quartzite by Otter Creek, a fast, clear, nearly undisturbed stream flowing over the large quartzite boulders. Although it supports trout, Otter Creek is better known for its diverse and unique aquatic insect fauna. Cold air drainage has permitted a white pine dominated forest to persist near the stream."
