Journey Down the Mississippi: Part III

From the river city of St. Paul ride along with kayaker Doug Ohman as he completes the entire Mississippi River to the Iowa border.  This stretch of nearly 200 miles of river takes us into some of the most picturesque scenery on our trip so far.  We will also experience some of the most charming river towns in the state, such as Red Wing and Wabasha.  When we finally get to the Iowa border, we will have traveled approximately 720 miles of this incredible American river.

Journey Down the Mississippi: Part II

Continue Kayaking with Doug Ohman through the heart of Minnesota from Little Falls to St. Paul.  This 130 miles of river is sure to entertain and educate as we travel through some larger urban centers such as St. Cloud and Minneapolis.  We will experience going through three river locks on this stretch.  Doug will also share more historical information about two very important explorers of the Mississippi River.

Journey Down the Mississippi: Part I

Many of you will remember Doug Ohman, who was in the area last year to do a series of programs in the Plum Creek Library System. In Tracy, he did a program on barns, which was co-hosted by Prairie View Senior Living. He also has several books featuring his photography.

This summer, we are happy to present a virtual program that Doug has created. In a series of three videos, he shares his journey by kayak on the Mighty Mississippi River.

In Part I, Doug will take you from the river’s headwaters at Lake Itasca to the central Minnesota town of Little Falls. Along the way you will experience wilderness, large lakes and interesting towns in this 400 mile journey. Doug will share Minnesota history and stories that relate to this upper section of river.

Join us tomorrow for Part II!
