Hovering the Wisconsin River on Labor Day 1999...WITH SNAKES!!!!!
|This small wood cottage sits alongside the river in peaceful bliss...and we headed downriver to the meeting of the Mississippi and Wisconsin Rivers!|
|At Milville Boat Landing, we encountered 4 Water Snakes, each about 4 feet long...this one was devouring its dinner (a small bull head).|
|Another struggle and another GULP!|
|The beauty of the Wisconsin is that you can stop anywhere...there's sandbars everywhere!!|
|Returning to Milville later in the day, this snake took off from the rocky shore...|
|And our friends is still GULPING!!|
|The shore of the Mississippi near Prairie du Chien was clutter with clam shells (the white objects in the foreground!)|
|Not the best thing to run over with a skirt, so we steered clear!|
|When you hover the Mississippi, you have to be ready to play with the bigger boats!|
|And even bigger boats.......!!!!!!!!|
|Returning home from the Mississippi to the Wisconsin, lots of back waters to explore!|
|Quiet wildlife sanctuaries...|
|Here we return to the Boscobel area on the Wisconsin River...|
|Still playing cat and mouse in the backwaters of the Mississippi, I caught Verdon trying to hide!!|
|And then he caught me!!|
Flying the Wisconsin is the epitome of hovercrafting...try it sometime soon! We have regularly scheduled hoverins or would be glad to just cruise with you!!
