The text of this card attracted us initially with the sign directing visitors to "keep to the left" on their way to the "highest point" in Wisconsin. Rib Mountain is not the highest point in Wisconsin though it is the highest mountain or hill at 1942 feet (not 1940 as this text claims). NOTE: Timms Hill (near Tomahawk, WI) is in fact the highest natural point at 1951.5 feet. The park claims to be one of the first ski resorts in the US having opened in 1937 and still operates as Granite Peak resort with 75 runs. Local legend claims that besides Paul Bunyan forming the Grand Canyon and the Mississippi River, that his burial alongside Babe the Blue Ox formed Rib Mountain. But this is a claim that can't be disproven through accurate measuring.
