Correction: I have mis-identified the Kettle River as the St. Croix River, sorry for any confusion.
The Kettle River is one of several scenic rivers in Minnesota. From it’s humble beginnings to where it meets up with the St. Croix River, it offers many miles of boating, fishing and hiking. The section of the river that runs through Banning State Park has peaceful, calm areas, as seen looking upriver from the access point. But, as the signs warns, up ahead are challenging rapids.

What Does The Eye See?
Along the Deschutes River in Bend, Oregon is an area of softer volcanic rock that has been worn away by the action of water and spinning rocks, creating potholes. This is a common feature along many rivers, including the St. Croix on the Minnesota and Wisconsin border. The interplay of shape and light tricks the eye into imagining most anything…so what do you see?
