Minnehaha Falls, MN

From: George

Is it the same type of place as one of the 7 Greatest Places?
Yes! It's a Waterfall.

About this Greatest Place:
A place we walked to from 38th st. in South Minneapolis. we packed steaks, bread, and matches and walked all day. We explored from the falls to the Mississippi. We would enjoy our lunch cooked out in the open on the shores of the Mississippi; where the Minnehaha Creek and Mississippi met. Then, we would go cave exploring below Fort Snelling (they are no longer there). To people like Bobby Lamberson, John Nagan, Martin Grady, Jim Fleetom, the late Harry Brom and Bernard Formico, and myself, it was a part of our exploration of the world. It still is.
