From its twisting and turning headwaters in northwestern Wisconsin to the surprisingly wild channels less than an hour’s drive from the Twin Cities, a paddler could spend a lifetime exploring the St. Croix River and still find surprise without even seeing all of its 150 miles.
St. Croix River Awareness Week is almost here! The St. Croix River Association and its partners are organizing a week of events to enjoy and help protect the river, featuring clean-up canoe trips, family-friendly seminars, film showings, and lots more.
The band Dawes has been featured by music website Daytrotter. The four live tunes are unsurprisingly excellent, but the stream-of-consciousness essay about the band, its music, and life that accompanies the music is worth the visit alone.
Braving the rain to canoe the river and fish for smallmouth bass and carp.
“There’s a river running through the city / Gently reminding me what’s what.” – Dawes, When You Call My Name
