The view from the top of the Mississippi River is stunning. The scenery has stayed much the same since the days of the Laurentide here in the driftless zone. They called these bluffs the Mississippi Mountain Range years ago. The indigenous built mounds in the shape of a group of bears, climbing up out of the valley.
We passed a waterfall and followed their steps. At the end of the strip of land with the mounds, on a wooden bench facing the bluff droppin gdown to the Mississippi, I sat silently listening to the animals and rising winds.
