Spring in the valley

A wide view of the St Croix river valley from a perch above downtown Stillwater. Spring yes but single digit temps at night keep the river frozen and ice-covered. 130 years ago back in 1884 logs spanned across the river as red and white pine from northern Minnesota and Wisconsin made their way down to sawmills in towns like St Croix Falls, Stillwater and Hudson (National Park Service photo).Above Stillwater MarchHistoric photo of logjam in Taylors Falls, 1884
