Tracks On The Saint Croix
Jerry Engen and Loon State Teammate Bill Stuber joined me for a morning of skate skiing on the Saint Croix River. We put in at the Boomsite north of Stillwater and cruised to the old railroad bridge 3 miles up-river. Along the way we came across a lot of fox, coyote and otter tracks. The weather was cold in the morning with a south wind. That helped on the trip up-river but hurt us on the way back. Among the live wildlife were a bunch of trumpeter swans, some Canadian geese and a big hawk. The picture is me and Jerry taken by Stubes.
