FILMING IN THE MOST WILD OF LOCATIONS
The Driftless Region, although located in the Upper Midwest of the continental United States, contains vast wilderness areas that even locals might not realize exist. These areas tend to be enormous flood plain forests like the Tiffany Bottoms or the Van Loon Bottoms. Huge upland forest areas exist, too.
YOU DON’T TAKE A PHOTOGRAPHY, YOU MAKE IT
Sustainable Driftless and its team of cinematographers have been venturing out into the wilds, exploring hidden gems of the Driftless landscape to share with you through our feature-length film and other publications.
Even for those of us who have grown up or spent considerable time living in the Driftless, the region continues to surprise and inspire us. Places like the dramatic, lushly vegetated waterfalls of the Decorah, Iowa area are one such delight. The expansive scenic vistas from the top of high bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River are another. And then there are the deep, dark caves, some of which are filled with ancient petroglyphs. It’s an amazing and beautiful landscape.
“The entire Driftless is an outdoor museum awaiting discovery and interpretation…. We enthusiastically support Sustainable Driftless’ new feature length documentary project.”
Not everyone gets to personally visit all of the amazing places in the Driftless. Even with a lifetime of exploring, you are unlikely to find many of the most beautiful or surprising spots. But Sustainable Driftless will bring these places to you through our documentary film, short videos, magazine, and other publications. It’s our mission to highlight the best the Driftless has to offer. And we hope by showcasing such spots, we’ll encourage more people to get out, cruise the area, and hike or bike your way through it.
We want you to have an amazing time in the Driftless!
