The Mindoro Cut
Posted March 13, 2015on:
The first warm weather of 2015 means it’s time for a road trip to visit undiscovered sites in the Driftless Region of Western Wisconsin. Last weekend’s drive took us to County T and State Highway 108 between Mindoro and West Salem in LaCrosse County.
The trip highlight was the Mindoro Cut. Built in 1907-1908, the Cut is considered the 2nd largest hand-hewn cut in the United States. It is listed in the National and State Register of Historic Places. County T and Hwy 108 are popular with motorcycle riders and convertible drivers. Both feature scenic views; Hwy 108 has wonderful hairpin turns.
I didn’t know about the Mindoro Cut before our road trip! It’s fun to keep discovering what’s in my backyard.
