  • Fantastic bird watching! Great interpretive center with interactive and educational stations throughout. Outdoor trails were well kept and beautiful! The animals inside had beautifully clean enclosures and were well cared for. Thanks for a wonderful day!
  • If you're visiting the Dubuque area, be sure to make a visit to the Mines of Spain. It is a truly magical place, and Dubuquer's will always be lucky to have it's presence nearby. Some of my favorite areas include the Horseshoe Bluff area, the train tracks and river nearby, some of the catfish creek trails, the ones farther down closer to the "Secret Circle" have some pretty amazing cliff/bluff structures and rock formations and outcroppings. This place was very sacred to the indiginous Natives that lived in the area. The forest here holds many secrets, and you can truly find yourself in this nostalgic place. I have many good memories here. A part of me will always live in the Mines of Spain.
