We took a short trip to La Crosse and Winona.
This is a lot bigger than the Wisconsin River that is near my home.
|We went to the Pickwick Mill, a very pretty place in a valley with Autumn colors|
|The mill is full of operable shafts and pulleys.|
There are many examples of flour and grain sacks.
You can see more about the mill on their web page, Pickwick Mill
This wasn't a railfan trip, but I did see trains, many from a distance, and some from way across the river.
This one was captured from a dash camera on the CP southbound of Winona. There was just one CP locomotive on the front, but it was a long train. I guess near 2 miles long.
|A car was parked by a short driveway to the shore of the river. Either this is a railfan, or someone waiting for the train to pass and clear out of the way.|
|A UP was on the rear.|
|Our arrival in Winona, by Sugar Loaf park|
