Near the twin cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul, the Saint Croix River forms the boundary between Minnesota and Wisconsin. One of the first rivers in the United Sates to be designated a National Scenic River, it has been protected since 1968. Here is an opportunity for nature and man to respectfully interact.
Living near the river, I have taken many photographs from 2003 to 2011 and wanted to share some of them in 'Images of the Saint Croix River.' In addition to photographs of the river, its backwaters, the river source, its mouth, flora, fauna, river towns and crossings are included. A special section by Walter Mondale, tells the story of how the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act came to be.
Paul Clark was born at Fort Jackson, South Carolina in 1943, and grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois, mostly in Oak Park. He received a BS degree from Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin. After college, he married Gretchen Muehlberg and proceeded to serve four years in the United States Marine Corps. Leaving the Corps as a Captain after one tour in Vietnam, they moved to Minnesota where Paul started a carrier at 3M. During 32 years with the company he held a variety of positions in product marketing and business management. Gretchen and Paul have two sons, eight grandchildren and are now retired in Scandia, Minnesota. In addition to several volunteer activities, Paul enjoys writing, gardening, genealogy/family history, photography and travel.
