We went out on the Mississippi on October 22 and had a wonderful time. We saw an adult bald eagle and two juveniles. We also saw a small parade of turkeys walking along the bank in single file. As we got closer, they took flight and flew across the river to the opposite bank. Check out Clear Waters Outfitting Company in Clearwater, MN if you want to rent a canoe or kayaks and take a 13 mile or 8 mile trip.
