Email News Alerts

A 22-year-old La Crosse woman was given a 303-dollar ticket, after she fell almost 100-feet down Grandad Bluff while hiking in an unauthorized area. The woman called 9-1-1 from her cell phone around 7:30 yesterday morning after she fell 40-to-50-feet off the tall bluff, and then tumbled another 50-feet. She landed near the base of a rock ledge. Authorities said it took a half-hour just to find the hiker – and it took two hours to rescue her, since crews had to cut down trees to reach her.
