We're planning a trip south from Minneapolis along the Mississippi. New country to us, so we want to lolly-gag along, check out the county, watch some birds and generally hang out. We're more interested in nature than history. We have a week to 10 days, and we don't really care how far south we eventually get; the object is to absorb the new-to-us scenery. Where to go and what to see?
Please and thank you.

Catch the Wisconsin side of Lake Pepin (the only natural lake in the river). Great views and lots of eagles. Several eagle nests visible from the road. The shore is largely undeveloped as it is owned by the BNSF railroad. Cross at Redwing MN. The lake runs down to the next crossing from Nelson, WI to Wabasha, MN.

There is a nice county campground just south of LaCrosse right on the Missisippi.

Goose Island Campground bring a box fan and the mosquitos will not bother you.

Deer will walk thru the campground at dusk.
