Today, my 2nd day on vacation in La Crosse, Wisconsin, was both magical and profound. I woke to the news that Muhammad Ali, a proponent of peace, was laid to rest in Louisville, Kentucky. But the best part of the day was spent on the La Crosse Queen, a riverboat tour of the Mississippi River. Before I boarded this incredible riverboat, I explore La Crosse's International Garden which was one of the most magnificent gardens I've ever seen.
The most incredible part of the day was when I took the La Crosse Queen riverboat tour up the Mississippi river to Winona, Minnesota. The lakefront houses, the bluffs, and the Amtrack bridge were quite a sight to see.
I have to say that today was the greatest day I could have spent in La Crosse. Although it was hot, it was gorgeous. The weather was good, the scenery magnificent, and the hospitality amazing!
