Prescription pain relievers (Olive, M. Foster.)

The Most Scenic Drives in America: 120 Spectacular Road Trips--First thing I saw in the index? "Ouray, Colo." First page at which I looked? 208: Winona [, Minn.]: "Leaving Frontenac State Park [via the Great River Road, called Highway 61 near Winona], you will pass Lake City, then Wabasha, then arrive in Winona. Built on a huge sandbar formed by the Mississippi thousands of years ago, the town sits in the shadow of lofty limestone bluffs that afford magnificent views of the river and Lake Winona. In this vicinity Rte. 61 parallels the Upper Mississippi National Wildlife and Fish Refuge, a vast network of wetlands, islands, forest, and prairie that border the Mississippi. Extending for some 260 miles through four states, this 200,000-acre preserve shelters some of the finest and rarest wildlife communities in the Mississippi Valley, including 292 species of birds--huge flocks of tundra swans congregate here in early November--118 kinds of fish, and many types of aquatic plants. For more information, write or call the refuge: 51 East Fourth St., Winona, MN 55987, or tel. 507-452-4232."
