Granddad Bluff in La Crosse, Wisconsin

My dad lives in La Crosse, Wis., and I love visiting him in the summertime.  There is so much to see and do in La Crosse.  One of our favorite stops is Grandad Bluff, which reopened this summer after some much needed renovations.  The new park is now handicap accessible, and now it's a terrific place to get an amazing view of the city of La Crosse and the Mississippi River.

See the blue Cass Street bridge to the left.  That's where my car crossed the Mississippi River.

My dad enjoying the scenic view.

The new Granddad Bluff visitors center is a popular spot.
In order to reach the top of Granddad Bluff, we drove on a windy road that seems to climb straight up.  It was a beautiful, almost clear day to see the scenery below.  Quite a contrast from the "flatlands" here in central Iowa!
