Lansing (Iowa) Loop

Lansing (Iowa) Loop Saturday November 7, 2009 Meet at 9AM at the LaCrescent, MINNESOTA, Kwik Trip across the downtown LaCrosse, Mississippi River Cass Street Bridge. If you take this downtown Cass St. Bridge into Minnesota from LaCrosse, you will see the Kwik Trip in LaCrescent at the only stoplight in LaCrescent. An alternate route is to take west bound I90 which passes between LaCrosse/Onalaska, WI across the Mississippi River into Minnesota and exit I90 IMMEDIATELY after you cross the main channel of the River. (Look for Lock & Dam 7 on your right as you cross the main channel of the Mississippi R.) Follow Hwy 35/61 south two miles from this exit to the LaCrescent Kwik Trip at the only stoplight in LaCrescent.Migrant waterfowl congregate on Pool 8 of the Mississippi R., and are viewable from either side of the River. Our trip may include a 10 mile sortie into Iowa for up close backwater waterfowl & Bald Eagle viewing, depending on weather conditions. At Lansing
