Hard to beat.....

...La Crosse, Wisconsin for natural beauty. With it's bluffs along the Mississippi, the area sure has it's unique beauty. The first photo is from Granddad Bluff, where you can take in 3 states at one time. It's definitely a place I'll be spending more time at in the future. A 1/2 day is not near long enough. We stayed here overnight on the way back from Kentucky. Next time, this is as far as we go. La Crosse is only 275 miles from home, vs. 910 to Paducah, KY.

If you loved Lacrosse you also need to try the southeast corner of the state--Lanesboro area. Fall is terrific.

Looks great Mike! I also love LaCrosse and especially the SE part of our fine state. Your second and third shots are my favs.

Next time you're in La Crosse, Porky's is a great restaurant. We were there a couple of years ago and they had a fantastic smoked elk tenderloin appetizer.

Great shots X. I need to get up that way more often. It's just under 100 miles from me. Beautiful country.

Better than Red Lobster? My wife insists on shrimp on our anniversary. I don't think she would have considered elk a decent substitute. grin However, I'll try to remember that for next time.

Takes me back home. I grew up down there and worked right on the river just south of the blue bridge. I used to deckhand on a harbor tug down there too. That was almost 25 years ago now.

    • I have seen 3 different flocks of Swan's in the past week. I have also seen small flocks of little birds that look to be migrating.
    • MCI:   Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.   With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.
    • Trump is the enemy of the truth ! 
    •   Shouldn't be hard to come up with a way to fill a 1/4 inch gap, it seems to me.   Rip some strips of something, maybe even that synthetic decking, trex or something.    Then you could have the vinyl
    •   *marks "leech brings up someone's location as evidence their opinions are not relevant" on sillytown bingo card*   I'm one "big dave says you just don't understand freedom" away from a BINGO!
    •     ........if you are member of the LIVs. My 2nd graders think I am really smart at math as well. 
    •   No, but they wouldn't send them all to Belle Plaine where all the bleedies will take care of them, so what are we going to do? Man your pulling everything out of the old Libertarian hang book tonight.

    •   No and no, I read it closely, but down here I shoot first then ask questions.                          
    •   Nice try.   You want me to rip apart your beloved Portugal?  There are hole everywhere.   First thing is first. This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets. "Sometimes I feel the promoters of this discussion are mixing things together using a lack of intellectual seriousness (Big Dave & Purple)," he said.""     This is just in 5 minutes, I'll go on doing this all day long. Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,
