The Grandad Bluff Adventure!
Last time I was here, I think I was 10 years old, so I was very excited to go back for a visit. This bluff has tons of trails for hiking, though we really didn’t “hike”. There is a parking lot at the top, so you just drive to it.
There are tons of things to read about the history, and there are views from so many different points. Wildflowers and tall grass litter the hills that make up the bluff. There is a short, paved walk that takes you out a bit from the main spot, and there is a small trail that brings you out to a cliff that parallels that – except there is no railing.
It was so freeing to be out there with no fence; no barrier to keep me from falling off the edge. The view is an amazing look over La Crosse, WI with Minnesota and Iowa in the horizon – I didn’t want to leave!
We snapped a few fun pictures, enjoyed the warmth of the sun, and the fresh air being carried by the breeze. It was beautiful.
