After setting up camp, we headed out to get groceries. On the way we wanted to stop at Goose Island Park, in Stoddard, WI. As the information I read stated that there was an interpretive hiking trail, we were looking forward to a little walk in the woods.
Before our hike we thought we would take a look at Goose Island Campground, one of La Crosse, County’s parks. We went to the campground office and chatted with the attendant, asking her if we could take a drive through the campground. As we drove through we disturbed a large hawk who flew ahead of us for a while then lit on a wooden swing frame. We tried to identify it and be think it was a Rough Legged Hawk, but don’t quote us on that. The campground was quite spread out, with roomy sites, however, we did not like that there were, what appeared to be semi-permanent sites.
We did have a nice walk on the trail but the only indication that there was any kind of signage was at an overlook. There were some mounts for signs but the signs were completely gone. We did see eagles and a red bellied woodpecker. Oh well the walk did us good.
