Glacial Lake Wisconsin existed between 18,000 to 14,000 years ago. This glacial lake formed as the Green Bay lobe approached from the northeast and blocked the early Wisconsin River near the Baraboo Hills. As the climate warmed, the lake water again found an outlet path through the Baraboo Hills and Glacial Lake Wisconsin catastrophically discharged in a period of a few days to weeks, forming the Dells of the Wisconsin River.
Interestingly, on the south side of Roche-A-Cri are numerous prehistoric Indian and more recent petroglyphs and pictographs. An example is found in the picture below, the inscription says: A.V. Dean. N.Y. 1861.
