Rendezvous in Prairie du Chien

The Prairie du Chien Rendezvous is a modern celebration of the historic event that drew Indians, trappers, and traders to the confluence of the Wisconsin River for many years in the late 18th and early 19th century. Every few years it draws me back, this year with my son Drew and granddaughter Eden.

the Shadewald Mound group

First stop was the Shadewald Mound group on a small hill near Muscoda with a spectacular view of the Wisconsin River Valley.
