i have heard of Minnehaha Falls Park, for years, and after laughing at the name, i finally got the chance to see it in person. look at that water fall ... so powerful. it was so loud.

if you recall my "Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park" posts ...we rented 2 kayaks they had available & this was the 1st kayaking trip we had taken since that trip ...our kayaks are totally different. different length, shape, you sit within the kayak totally opposite. if you have not ridden in a kayak or canoe - you really don't understand. but it is like riding in a car on the opposite side, or trying to write with a hand that you don't normally write with. so wild. i just continued to feel something was off or strange? we had our normal paddles again. it was like teaching yourself to row again. wild times. we had a blast. also the weather was changing so (cold front coming in) - …
