The joyful failure of loving you




Note: Never touched by glaciers, the Driftless Area is characterized by its beautifully sculpted topography.
Forested hillsides reach down to valleys cut into limestone bedrock by cold-water trout streams.
Forests, prairie remnants, wetlands, and grasslands provide habitat for wildflowers and wildlife.
Land is farmed by the descendants of those who first settled here,
by the Amish who adopted the area, and by a new breed of organic farmer.
Artists, who need look no further than their own backyard for inspiration, create works of infinite variety.
