Paddle quietly and feel the peace. Brush your hands on the 3.8 billion year old granite outcroppings. Be startled by the slap of a beaver’s tail, and be surprised by the butterflies and the eagle soaring over head. Cast your fishing line into that deep pool shaded by the overhanging trees. The Minnesota River entices you to enjoy the water and absorb the scenic beauty. – Senator Dennis Fredrickson
