One thing Vikings and Packers will agree...The glorious beauty of the Saint Croix River!
Many majestic miles of pines, rock outcrops, sugar sand, and rushing waters, provide a scenic border between Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Since being designated a Wild River, a half century ago, development along the river has been minimal. The river can be busy on weekends, but up river on weekdays -- canoes are no more numerous than two centuries ago, when the Saint Croix was frequented by native bands of Dakota and Ojibwa.
Nineteenth century sites abound along the river, from Swedish settlements upriver at Taylor and Saint Croix Falls, past quaint Marine, boom-town Stillwater, and resurgent Hudson, to the natural beaches as the Saint Croix widens towards Prescott.
As the river widens below Hudson, sails are more likely to vie with motor powered water craft -- some enviously splendid.
Due to lack of development, hikers and climbers can still find challenges amidst the high bordering bluffs. And swimmers can find their idyllic sand bar.
Suffice it to say, you will want more then a day.
There is something for everyone -- along this waterway.
