Another gorgeous day on the river. I think it’s going to storm tomorrow though. That’s cool. We should arrive in Little Falls, MN tomorrow afternoon. I’m going to need a recovery day. Which means a burger and a beer. 😉.
I’m still thinking about my recent losses. My head is a jumbled mess. I’m surprised I haven’t lost anything yet. The river does help sooth me though.
Right now, the river has widened up quite a bit. Today we passed through a series of small islands called The Thousand Islands. They’re a result of the world’s largest log jam in history. It happened in the late 1800’s. It was 6.5 miles long, 1/2 mile wide and 40-60 feet deep! Took 6 months to break it up. The logs that remained collected sediment and formed little islands. As a matter of fact, I’m sleeping on one tonight. Fletcher’s Point campsite didn’t look very easy to get to, so we settled for an island. It’s actually pretty nice.
