Paddling down the mighty Mississippi!

The view from our canoe: the river, trees, and our other canoes

Out on the water

On a lazy summer day, what could be better than a canoe trip on the Mississippi River? Recently, Vision Loss Resources clients shared this experience thanks to outdoor activity guides from Wilderness Inquiry.
We were a big group of 35 participants, including students in our Adjustment to Blindness Training Center. We strapped on our life jackets and climbed into five 24-foot Voyager canoes, paddling from Hidden Falls Regional Park to Lilydale.


Summer in Minnesota can be extreme, with hot, humid weather, but our canoe trip couldn’t have taken place on a more beautiful day. We enjoyed a picnic lunch at the Crosby Farm Regional Park, and everyone had a great time. As summer winds to an end, we’ll remember this day for a long time to come.
