La Crosse Area
Mississippi River ice can be very dangerous and deceiving with
ice thickness and strength changing over short distances depending
on what’s happening under the ice. ATVs and snowmobilers had been
traveling over areas with 1 to 2 inches of ice during the colder
weather. Many of these areas opened up, and ice travelers are
cautioned that areas they traveled last week may be open water now
or have weaker ice. Increasing numbers of bald eagles are showing
up, as are some goldeneyes, scaup, and mallards.
