If you’re not exploring the outdoors in La Crosse County, you’re missing out. Our area is called the Driftless Area because it was missed by the great glaciers that covered this land millions of years ago, so it is an ancient landscape. Nowhere else on earth can you find deep carved river valleys, lush green islands, forested hillsides, miles of trout streams, prairies, wetlands, ice age plants, and amazing limestone bluffs and caves just like this. Every city, town and village in La Crosse County has its own unique landscapes and waterways. Go see them.
