We want to share the new website for Driftless Wisconsin tourism and travel information. This area, covering several counties in southwest Wisconsin, is named for it’s terrain left untouched by continental glaciers. The term “drift” refers to the rock, clay, and silt material that left behind by continental glaciers. Driftless is known for it’s peculiar landscapes, including deep river valleys, caves and cave systems, underground streams, and cold springs. Cold streams with cold springs as it sources are noted as superb trout habitat.
The team behind the Driftless website and tourism is a collaboration of folks representing Kickapoo Valley, Crawford county and Vernon county; Pete Knapik from the Inn at Lonesome Hollow in Soldiers Grove, Marie Cimino from the Westby House Bed and Breakfast in Westby, Eric Frydenlund from the Crawford County Tourism Council, and David Boyer from the Kickapoo Valley Association. Pete and Marie had enjoyed their experiences with the Wisconsin bed and breakfast association site we designed, and asked if we couldn’t make something similar for their unique and beautiful area of the state.
