The Roche A Cri Question?

This website started out as a promotional site for Central Wisconsin but is turning into the search of knowledge, for the translation of "Roche-A-Cri".   The words Roche-A-Cri in the United States is unquie to Adams County, WI. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources or DNR says it's a french word translated into "crevice in the rock".  But WisconisnHistory.org translation of the phrase is "Shouting or whooping Rock" and yet there is a but 3rd looser meaning for Roche a Cri petroglyphs means Friendship glyphs from Reference.com. Maybe some historian or translator will come along with the true meaning of Roche-A-Cri.          WI Real Estate - Homes | Land | Log Homes & Cabins | Lake Petenwell | Castle Rock Lake
