Sec 2 T94N R3W, Clayton County, Iowa, five miles south of Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin.
A visit to Pikes Peak is a nice complement to a visit to Wyalusing, because the view from Pikes Peak shows the confluence of the Wisconsin and Mississippi Rivers from a different perspective.
|View north along the Mississippi. Note the bluffs, the very wide flood plain and the braided channel geometry.|
|View north-northeast across the Mississippi, with Prairie du Chien on the far shore.|
|The confluence. The Wisconsin River is visible at upper right. Wyalusing State Park in Wisconsin is atop the bluffs on the extreme right edge.|
|Looking southeast across the Mississippi|
