... Boy Are My Arms Tired!

Yesterday I paddled the Mississippi River Challenge sponsored by Friends of the Mississippi River. It was originally going to be a two-day 44-mile paddle through the entire Twin Cities but because of the bridge collapse, the first day (which included the stretch under 35W) was cancelled. However, 22-miles is still a significant distance to paddle in one weekend. Below is a map of the route (click for big).

This paddle continues my summer-o-paddling the Twin Cities Rivers.

I recently paddled a stretch from Bohemian Flats (just downstream of 35W) to Hidden Falls Park.

And I also jumped into the Minnesota River just downstream of Hwy 77, paddled to the Mississippi, and took out at Lilydale.
