Chapter Trip to the Driftless Area
May 19 – May 22
The Chapter is organizing a trip to the Driftless area May 19 – 22. We will be staying at a lodge in the Viroqua/Westby area. This is an “exchange” trip. We will be hosted and guided by members of the Lee Wulff Chapter, and we will host and guide their Chapter members in mid-July in the Summit County area.
The Driftless is a geologic region in the Midwest in the states of Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, and a little bit of Illinois. It is called “driftless” because it lacks glacial debris left in the topsoil (boulders and gravel) from the last ice age. There is likely a fancier explanation than this, but that’s good enough for now. The region is known for lots of limestone land features and spring-fed streams. This is what leads to excellent trout fishing as there is a constant source of cool clean water.
