Peepers Report

Brady's Bluff
Leaf peepers will be happy to know Perrot is turning. The brilliant red sumac and Virginia creeper vines are just the beginning.

Perrot Ridge

I traveled up Brady's Bluff and Perrot Ridge this past week to see for my self. It's sure to go fast now folks so come on out.

Trempealeau Bay

There's still plenty to do in the park. The Trempealeau Bay is gorgeous this time of year for canoeing and kayaking. Rentals are just $15 for your own three hour tour.

Prairie Garden

The Great River Bike Trail is full of crunchy leaves to add to the sound effect of whirling wheels, and yes you do still need to buy a bike pass.

Trempealeau Refuge
A walk through the prairie garden by the nature center reveals the architecture of these sturdy plants.

Unfortunately our neighbors to the north-Trempealeau National Wildlife Refuge are on furlow, due to the government shutdown. Hope they are finding some meaningful activities to take their minds off the drama in Washington. This means no entry into the refuge.  Real Bummer.

  2. $15 for 3 hours is incredible - you're lucky to get an hour for that on the east coast. I've still not learned how to kayak and would love to add that to my list of things to explore.
