Hey! It’s Sunday. Let’s take a step back and lighten things up…
Tuesday we played tourist, reminiscing and visiting our favorite places on both sides of the St. Croix River. Here are some more pictures from our trip:
Yesterday I commented on how much adding the dam between St. Croix Falls and Taylors Falls had reduced the water flow. But thousands of years ago as the glaciers melted, the water flowed with so much force through this area that large boulders would become trapped and spinning in one spot, leaving “pot holes” like this one as the ice receded.
Some of these pot holes are almost 100 feet deep and twenty or more feet across. We took these pictures on one of the trails in Interstate Park, aptly named the Pot Hole Trail.
Here is a picture of one of the paddle boats, which takes tourists up and down the river during the summer and fall…
We didn’t have time to take a boat ride this trip. Maybe next time.
More pictures tomorrow. Feel good and keep smiling! Pat
