This last weekend, Mel and I canoed down Minnehaha Creek with some friends. It was our third time canoeing the creek. The first time, the water was really high, and it was a pretty wild ride. The second time, the water was way too low. This time, conditions were perfect for canoeing.
We started at Synagogue Cemetery on France Avenue in Edina.
Construction on the Bryant Avenue Pedestrian Bridge were a pretty big pain, mostly because a fallen tree was stuck underneath the construction, blocking the whole river.
Nicollet Avenue Bridge:
At 35W, we found this sign telling us that the creek was closed. We were pretty skeptical that it was actually closed, so we just kept going.
Ta Daaaa! Not actually closed!
But another fallen tree slowed us down a bit.
At the Hiawatha Golf Course, some of the bridges are pretty low and you have to duck under them.
