River Fun in La Crosse, Wisconsin
If you know nothing else about La Crosse, you probably know it has rivers. The Black River runs 190 miles from Taylor County in north central Wisconsin to its mouth here in La Crosse, where it mingles with the nearly 8,000-acre Lake Onalaska and the mighty Mississippi.
The La Crosse River begins some 60 miles northeast of La Crosse in Monroe County and joins the Mississippi just north of Riverside Park in downtown La Crosse. And of course there’s the Mississippi itself, over 2,300 miles long, the lifeblood of La Crosse and communities like it for hundreds of years.
The confluence of these rivers means miles and miles of winding channels, hidden backwaters, and open river–basically, a boater’s dream, perfect for water skiing, fishing, or just cruising and relaxing.

Old Indian Mound at Lake Monroe Conservation Area (Part Two)
Continuing on with my exploration here at this Native American Indian Mound at Lake Monroe Conservation Area. Deep in the wilderness, evidence from the past and the natives that lived here long ago by the St. Johns River. It was amazing to walk in such a place of history. It was one of the largest mounds I have seen like this, mostly shells around it. Shellfish was a main part of the diet here for the Natives and they would discard the shells, bones and pottery on the mound and it would get very large over hundreds of years. Today it isn't as large as it once was. The Mayaca or Timucuan Indians lived in the areas but not positive. As always I left all artifacts undisturbed it is prohibited and illegal to dig for and remove artifacts from this place. It is important to leave history here for future generations to learn about.

Morning Walk - Lake Michigan & Grant Park / Millennium Park – Chicago Illinois
Grant Park is a large urban park (319 acres or 1.29 km²) in the Loop community area of Chicago. Located in Chicago's central business district, the park's most notable features are Millennium Park, Buckingham Fountain, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Museum Campus. Originally known as Lake Park, and dating from the city's founding, it was renamed in 1901 to honor Ulysses S. Grant. The park's area has been expanded several times through land reclamation, and was the focus of several disputes in the late 1800s and early 1900s over open space use. It is bordered on the north by Randolph Street, on the south by Roosevelt Road and McFetridge Drive, on the west by Michigan Avenue and on the east by Lake Michigan. The park contains performance venues, gardens, art work, sporting, and harbor facilities. It hosts public gatherings, and several large annual events.
The park is often called Chicago's front yard. It is governed by the Chicago Park District.
Millennium Park is a public park located in the Loop community area of Chicago in Illinois, US, and originally intended to celebrate the millennium. It is a prominent civic center near the city's Lake Michigan shoreline that covers a 24.5-acre (99,000 m2) section of northwestern Grant Park. The area was previously occupied by parkland, Illinois Central rail yards, and parking lots. The park, which is bounded by Michigan Avenue, Randolph Street, Columbus Drive and East Monroe Drive, features a variety of public art. As of 2009, Millennium Park trailed only Navy Pier as a Chicago tourist attraction.
Planning of the park began in October 1997. Construction began in October 1998, and Millennium Park was opened in a ceremony on July 16, 2004, four years behind schedule. The three-day opening celebrations were attended by some 300,000 people and included an inaugural concert by the Grant Park Orchestra and Chorus. The park has received awards for its accessibility and green design. Millennium Park has free admission, and features the Jay Pritzker Pavilion, Cloud Gate, the Crown Fountain, the Lurie Garden, and various other attractions. The park is connected by the BP Pedestrian Bridge and the Nichols Bridgeway to other parts of Grant Park. Because the park sits atop a parking garage and the commuter rail Millennium Station, it is considered the world's largest rooftop garden.
Some observers consider Millennium Park to be the city's most important project since the World's Columbian Exposition of 1893. It far exceeded its originally proposed budget of $150 million. The final cost of $475 million was borne by Chicago taxpayers and private donors. The city paid $270 million; private donors paid the rest, and assumed roughly half of the financial responsibility for the cost overruns. The construction delays and cost overruns were attributed to poor planning, many design changes, and cronyism. Many critics have praised the completed park.
Lake Michigan is one of the five Great Lakes of North America and the only one located entirely within the United States. The other four Great Lakes are shared by the U.S. and Canada. It is the second-largest of the Great Lakes by volume and the third-largest by surface area, after Lake Superior and Lake Huron (and is slightly smaller than the U.S. state of West Virginia). To the east, its basin is conjoined with that of Lake Huron through the wide Straits of Mackinac, giving it the same surface elevation as its easterly counterpart; the two are technically a single lake. Lake Michigan is shared, from west to east, by the U.S. states of Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, and Michigan. The word Michigan originally referred to the lake itself, and is believed to come from the Ojibwa word mishigami meaning great water. Lake Michigan is also the only one of the five Great Lakes not to share a shoreline with the Canadian province of Ontario, the only province in Canada that borders the Great Lakes.

Castle Rock Lakefront Mackinac Trail Campground (took some effort to make a really long name!) in St Ignace Michigan offers small and large full, partial, and primitive (no water, electric, or sewer) hookup RV and tent camping in a wooded setting adjacent to Lake Huron. Conveniently located just off exit 348 from Interstate 75 the park is set midway between classic old town St Ignace and the Indian casino north of town. Guests access the park via a paved road that eventually transitions to paced dirt.
All the sites are packed dirt with some grass and plenty of trees. There are a few large sites but we caution owners of RVs over 40′ as the park does have tight roads and plenty of trees. Smaller RVs and tent campers can pick from a number of pretty campsites with views of the water.
Restrooms and showers with running water are available. The park is located just across the interstate from the trail-head for Castle Rock look out. Some seasonal sites are available.
