Warm-up trip down the Mississippi
My environmental politics class spent 3 days on the river in mid-April, and had a fantastic time. Lots of bald eagles, herons, egrets, carp, and signs that the river is getting cleaner. We're planning a longer trip for next year, and this was a great warm-up for the NZ trip.
Here's a shot of us in the canoes, going through Lock and Dam # 1 just downstream from the Augsburg Campus.
