Mysteries of the Driftless
North Ridge Guesthouse is very proud to bring you immediate access to an Emmy Award winning short documentary Mysteries of the Driftless. This is a 28 minute film created right here in what is known as the driftless zone, a unique geologic “island” that was formed in a different way than anywhere else in the world due to the tracks of the glaciers.
The resulting plant, wildlife and geologic diversity makes this area a place like no other. To top it off, it was directed by our good neighbor and friend down the road. Enjoy!
