Inscription.  Towering 1,940 feet above sea level, Rib Mountain is the third highest point in Wisconsin. From here, you can look out over the patchwork of homes, factories and farm land that covers the landscape.

You may even see a hawk or turkey vulture soaring overhead on a current of warm air. Or, you might watch the dark clouds of a thunderstorm as they travel across the sky. Take a few moments to enjoy this spectacular view.
