Tour Day Number 1 -Tuesday - Today's Run started out with a tour of Villa Louis which is the home of a prominent fur trader who built his estate on the bank of the Mississippi River in Prairie du Chien.  After leaving Villa Louis we headed North along the Mississippi River to Lansing, WI. This was our lunch stop and after lunch we headed back along the River to return to Prairie du Chien. Mileage for the day was around 80+ miles.
