We recently finished a series of articles on scenic drives in Southwest Wisconsin. The landscape in this region was formed by a unique geological occurrence that escaped the flow of glaciers and as a result is known as the the Driftless Area. This has produced a landscape of rolling hills, steep bluffs, rock outcroppings, mixed woods and fields, lush valleys, and creeks and rivers abound. It is also a largely rural area whose villages have retained their character. The first posts in this series are:
- Cheese Country Fall Color Drive
- Part 1 Cheese Country Scenic Drive
- Part 2 Cheese Country Scenic Drive,
- Visiting Monroe Wisconsin, and
- Visiting Historic Shullsburg.
