Up the River

The St. Croix river empties out at Prescott, Wisconsin. It is a Federally protected river that starts in Northwest Wisconsin.  Originally created by the outflow of Lake Superior at the end of the Glacier era, the St. Croix is a scenic wonderland. Additional digital photos will be added shortly.
