Viroqua Things to Do

Virquoa, is the seat of Vernon County, the 2,432nd county I have traveled to in my ongoing quest to visit each of the 3,142 counties (or their equivilents) in the United States in my lifetime.
In each county I try to do more than just step my foot over the county line or drive through. I seek out at least one attraction - and often many of them - depending on the time I have available and the things that are there to see. It might be a state or national park, a monument, a historical site - or the county courthouse.
Some people have suggested to me that I should have a photo taken of myself in front of some recognizable landmark in each county so that I can verify that I was there. But I have nobody to prove anything to but myself, and their is no reward for the achievement other than personal satisfaction. So, although I do take lots of pictures many places I go, I am not in most of them. However, in front of the Vernon County Courthouse an elderly gentleman saw me taking pictures and volunteered to shoot one with me in it. It took three tries before he got this one centered right. Thank God for digital cameras.Related to:
