Spring on the Mississippi River

A few weekends ago, we spent the weekend at one of our favorite Top Lodging Gems – Lion Downe Cottage in Lake Pepin, Wisconsin – with some friends. We hoped we would see Bald Eagles since they are often found along the Mississippi River.

Were we ever surprised! We saw over 50 Bald Eagles, all ages.

And, we even saw the migration of over 100 American White Pelicans on their way north.

You can view some of these and many other photos in the Wallner Photography Galleries.

Enjoy the photos in this week’s blog!
