Gigapan EPIC


Dubuque is the oldest city in Iowa, and has a rich rivertown heritage. Located at the intersection of Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin, the bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River provide stunning vistas like this one.

The hilly terrain provided a challenge for early settlers. Enterprising citizen J.K. Graves built the first funicular-style elevator at Fourth Street, which remains in operation today. An additional elevator at 11th Street was never as successful and was eventually dismantled.

The "twins" in the photo are my sweetheart Lynne, we played a little gigapan trick!

After the Fourth Street elevator opens in April we'll return to capture the view from their observation platform.
