A Compelling Story
What caused the massive continental glaciers of the last Ice Age to surround but miss the Driftless Region, this unique place, for more than a million years? What holdovers from an ancient world remain in this one area that wasn’t flattened and scoured by mile-high ice sheets? What secret places exist to explore? What will happen to this landscape?
A Beautiful & Mysterious Landscape
The Driftless Region, with its rugged bluffs, sheer cliffs, twisting rivers, majestic prairies, deep caves, ancient effigy mounds and petroglyphs, and rare species left behind from the Pleistocene Epoch, is like no other. Join us in our quest to explore the gorgeous lands and waters of this place.
In 1673, Father Marquette described the area as follows: “Here we are, then, on this so renowned a river, all of whose peculiar features I have endeavored to note carefully. This Missisipi River takes its rise in various lakes in the country of the northern nations. It is narrow at the place where Miskous empties; its current, which flows southward, is slow and gentle. To the right is a large chain of very high mountains, and to the left are beautiful lands; in various places, the stream is divided by islands.”
