What is it?

The Driftless Region is a geographical region located in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, and Iowa that was never glaciated. During the retreat of glaciers in the surrounding area, the melting ice caused flooding which carved deep river valleys that flow in the Mississippi River.  As a result the area is filled with varying upland prairies, steep ridges, rock outcroppings, and deep, narrow valleys.
