In the middle of North America exists a beautiful and mysterious land, left untouched for millions of years by massive continental glaciers of the last Ice Age. This is the Driftlessa rugged landscape home to tremendous biodiversity, fascinating geology, and features unique in the world.
If you grew up here, you may know this is a very special place. But as nice as it is, most people dont realize how rare and fragile the Driftless is: it contains the worlds oldest river, deep caves with petroglyphs, hidden waterfalls, fossils from ancient seas, almost the entire worlds collection of ancient effigy mounds, and a migratory bird corridor of global importance. And why did the glaciers miss this region?
If people are unaware of what an amazing place this is, they may never connect with and enjoy it, and it could be lost forever.
Take a breathtaking flight over ancient, scenic blufflands, dive into cold-water trout streams, rappel down precipitous and rugged rock faces, venture deep into ancient caves, explore mysterious underground rivers, and enjoy the magnificence of the massive Mississippi River ecosystem. Its all waiting for you in Decoding the Driftless!
