kayaking the mississippi

Now that Joel and I have our kayaks we were both anxious to take them down the river.  We put them in a few miles from our house into the Mississippi.  It was a gorgeous day and I loved being on the river with Joel!

It was really fun having a view of the Minneapolis skyline for most of our trip down the river.

We pulled out at Boom Island Park in North Minneapolis. It was a really nice park with a great boat launching area.

There was a light house and a paddle boat.  It was very quaint!

Over all the trek down the river was not as picturesque.  Most of the time we were boating through very industrial areas.  It was a very interesting tour of the cities.  I am looking forward to going down the St. Croix and enjoying the fall colors and scenery.
