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.
