We have moved up river to Goose Island County Park, which is part of a National Wildlife refuge. It is located three miles south of La Croose. This area is all about majestic bluffs, coulees and marshes, and has some of the most spectacular scenery along the Mississippi River. Besides the Mississippi River, the Black River as well as the La Crosse River flow through the city. Yesterday we drove up the largest bluff around here,which is called Granddad. It rises 700 feet above the river, most of the other bluffs are at an average of 600 feet.
