Southwestern Wisconsin is called the driftless area. Unlike the rest of the state it wasn’t plowed over by drifting glaciers in the last ice age. Farmland on the broad hilltops and the narrow valleys. Lots of wooded hills. Some of the most beautiful countryside you’ll ever see.
Stopped at the dollar store in Viroqua, which I shared with a Mennonite family doing a little shopping.
This is a view across the Mississippi River just west of Viroqua as I was leaving. Viroqua is a town of around 5,000 with a mix of arty and hippy types and farm economy workers. It isn’t far from the headquarters of Organic Valley foods. I camped in a county park two nights and went out on a rented bike on the well-maintained, low traffic roads in the area. Next stop Black Hills of SD.
