We live in the area known as the driftless part of Wisconsin.
An area which the glaciers did not touch. We are blessed with rolling hills, bluffs, the Mississippi river and areas of great natural beauty. On Sunday we headed over to the picturesque little town of Alma, Wisconsin. Alma is situated right along the Great River Road and is a hopping little town especially during the warmer months.
They have a great little Art and Music festival once a year during Labor day weekend.
One of the highlights of the day was a presentation by a trainer from the National Eagle Center just up the road a bit in Wabasha, Minnesota.
My little niece Chloe and grand-daughter Addison sure enjoyed getting up close and personal with this majestic bird.
She brought with her one of their smaller Eagles. This one only weighed about 7lbs. and was a Florida Eagle. The eagles around us get up to 18 lbs..I think she may have wanted a lighter load this day.
The bluffs are truly magnificent! If you want a great autumn drive well let me tell you, the Great River Road is just one of the best.
Besides music, food, art and other fun things the little girls enjoyed just strolling along the beach.
The husband/grandpa too.
They had a great time dancing and entertained a lot of the senior folks in the audience.
A real treat was seeing the American Queen pass through the lock and dam in the little town of Alma.
A crowd came out to greet them.
It was one of those days I wish I could bottle up and do over.
So what's up in your neck of the woods?
