Prairie du Chien from Wyalusing State Park

Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin and vicinity, looking north from a viewpoint at Wyalusing State Park. The Wisconsin River is in the foreground. Parts of the Mississippi River can be seen at left. The bluff above the river is at the far right, The hills in the left background are in Iowa.

 

The Burlington Route railroad tracks (now Burlington Northern Santa Fe) run diagonally from left center. I believe that the field in the right center is Prairie du Chien airport. U.S. Highway 18 ("the Great River Road) is beyond the airport. Prairie du Chien Country Club is well off to the right.

 

 

The main part of Prairie du Chien is to the west (left) of the railroad. The center of the city is about 5 miles (8 km) from the viewpoint. This photo is geotagged with the approximate camera location.
