Winter canoeing or kayaking on the St Croix: peaceful and beautiful. This image is of the basalt cliffs on the St Croix River between Stillwater, MN and Taylors Falls, MN. The St Croix, a National Scenic Riverway, is one of the most beautiful river valleys in the country. There is archaeological evidence that the river and area around it has been inhabited for three to four thousand years at least. In the 1800s, the river was used to transport logs from northern Wisconsin and Minnesota to sawmills further downstream. The area around the Dalles of the St Croix, which this image pictures, was the site of a huge logjam in 1883, taking several months to untangle.
