» In this Northeastern section of the state, the Mississippi River valley transverses a picturesque landscape formed of high rocky bluffs, limestone gorges and rugged hills. Clear fast running streams cut through hills covered by oak, hickory, and maple trees. The river bluffs and hills become ever steeper before plunging down to the wide bottomed river valley.
