About 5 miles from Glidden Lodge Beach Resort in Door County is a prolific example of the Niagara Escarpment. What is this awesome formation that has its origins near Niagara Falls in New York state?

From Wikipedia:

The Niagara Escarpment is a long escarpment, or cuesta, in the United States and Canada that runs predominantly east/west from New York, through Ontario, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Illinois. It is composed of the Lockport geological formation of Silurian age, and is similar to the Onondaga geological formation, which runs parallel to it and just to the south, through western New York and southern Ontario. The escarpment is most famous as the cliff over which the Niagara River plunges at Niagara Falls, for which it is named.

The Niagara Escarpment is the most prominent of several escarpments formed in the bedrock of the Great Lakes Basin.

Life can be stressful. Come stay at our beautiful Door County Beach!

“In every out thrust headland, in every curving beach, in every grain of sand there is the story of the earth.”
Rachel Carson
glbr_wdst_rachelcarson_spring

There is nothing that ails your soul which cannot begin to be mended with time at the beach.

And while the temps have been darn right toasty lately, soon our gorgeous Door County landscape will begin to lean into fall and the waters of our Lake Michigan beach will seem to take on an urgency. The lusty whitecaps. The cold dark hues of the surf. The migration of birds, flying low over the water, sites set on warmer climes. There is a comforting rhythm to life at our four-season beach and we want to share it with you.

Isn’t it time you “found the story of the earth in our grains of sand?”

Glidden Lodge Beach Resort is ready for you.
Come stay with us this fall.
