Looking out over Prairie du Chien, The Wisconsin, The Mississippi & Iowa in the distance from the bluffs of Wyalusing State Park.
Sea kayakers know that Wisconsin has miles and miles of coastline boarding two inland seas, Lake Superior to the north and Lake Michigan to the east. The state’s western border is cut by the famous workhorse, the Mississippi river which flows from Lake Itasca in Minnesota, south to the Gulf of Mexico. The Wisconsin River flows diagonally across the state some 430 miles to join the Mississippi near a small town built in the Mississippi flood plain called Prairie Du Chien. (The Prairie of “Dog” but that’s another story).
