One of my favorite places was when i was traveling down the river road along side of the mississippi river. I believe i was by lake pepin. I remember pulling over and there was some openings where you could see the other side into minnesota. The sun was setting and it was one of the most beautiful sights i have ever seen. The red and pink glow of the sunset and the gleming lights on the other side of the river from houses and businesses. It was so calming and peaceful. I have never went down back that way but i need to! It was absolutely beautiful! picture of lake pepin, wisconsin side

the picture i found on the internet is about the closest ill get to describing it, but you have to see it for yourself. There are some historic markers off the side of the road, and at sunset it all looks so nice with the sunset and the city lights across the river! Go check it out!
