Merrimac Car Ferry, Wisconsin

In central Wisconsin, not far from Gibraltar Rock State Natural Area, is the Merrimac Car Ferry over the Wisconsin River.

We take modern travel for granted. Here is a point in the Wisconsin River/Lake Wisconsin where there is no bridge. Instead a *free* car ferry shuttles traffic back and forth on Wisconsin Highway 113 between Okee and Merrimac 24 hours a day from spring through autumn (when the waterway isn’t ice covered).

It’s a cool ride!
