Five days? To drive from Minnesota to St Louis? Are you sure you are giving yourself enough time?” the words of this discussion played over and over in my head on day five of this journey.
I was now clean of the Whitewater State Park mud and back on the road heading towards Winona, Minnesota. This historic town is located along the banks of the Mississippi River and almost every canoe paddler in the world knows the canoes that have made this small town famous: Wenonah Canoes. I was excited to find what this town held for a canoe paddler like myself.
