Description Virtually untouched by the Ice Age glaciers, the La Crosse area's jagged bluffs, coulees and river valleys are as they were at the beginning of time. In 1680, French explorers led by Fr. Louis Hennepin were the first Europeans to view the remarkable convergence of the Mississippi, Black and La Crosse Rivers here. In the 1700s French fur traders named the area La Crosse after they saw the Winnebago Indians playing a game with long-handled racquets resembling crosses, similar to the game of lacrosse still in play.

Kind Regards, Ken ***** "There is no art which affords less opportunity to execute expression than photography. Everything is concentrated in a few seconds, when after perhaps an hours seeking, waiting, and hesitation, the photographer sees the realization of his inward vision, and in that moment he has one advantage over most arts - his medium is swift enough to record his momentary inspiration."
