Visit to Mines of Spain

I visited Mines of Spain Recreation Area near Dubuque, Iowa yesterday.  I had intended to visit for a long time, but am very glad I finally made it.  There were many trails… some of which still show signs of damage from the heavy rains (approx.   14 inches this summer).  I hiked the Catfish Creek and Horseshoe Bluff trails.  The bluffs in the Horseshoe Bluff area were incredible!  I started to climb Horseshoe Bluff, but it was so steep, I opted not to go all the way to the top.
