FTS class canoes the Minnesota R. before floodwaters get too high

Posted on September 21st, 2010 by

Prof. Triplett’s first-term seminar class “River” was fortunate to have sunny weather and mild winds during their Sunday 9/19 canoe trip from Mankato to 7-Mile Creek Park.  The river was unusually high for this time of year making good picnicking spots scarce (and it got even higher later in the week!), but they still saw plenty of stratified floodplain sediment, nice bedrock outcrops and huge trees beached on the river’s sandbars.
