Jay Cooke State Park, Carlton, Minnesota
Jay Cooke State Park is a state park of Minnesota, United States, protecting the lower reaches of the St. Louis River. The park is located about 10 miles (16 km) southwest of Duluth and is one of the ten most visited state parks in Minnesota. The western half of the park contains part of a rocky, 13-mile (21 km) gorge. This was a major barrier to Native Americans and early Europeans traveling by canoe, which they bypassed with the challenging Grand Portage of the St. Louis River. The river was a vital link connecting the Mississippi waterways to the west with the Great Lakes to the east.
Today Minnesota State Highway 210 runs through Jay Cooke State Park. The 9 miles (14 km) of the route between Carlton and Highway 23—which include the park—are designated the Rushing Rapids Parkway, a state scenic byway.
The park is named for Pennsylvania financier Jay Cooke, who had developed a nearby power plant, which is still in use. The Grand Portage trail and three districts of 1930s park structures are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Orion Correlation of three main mounds in Indian Mounds Park in St Paul, MN.
Indian Mounds Regional Park is a public park in Saint Paul, Minnesota, featuring 6 prehistoric Native American burial mounds overlooking the Mississippi River. The oldest mounds were constructed 1,500--2,000 years ago by people of the Hopewell tradition. Later the Dakota interred their dead there as well. At least 31 more mounds were destroyed by development in the late 19th century. They were the tallest Native American mounds in Minnesota or Wisconsin (except for the unique 45-foot (14 m) Grand Mound outside International Falls, Minnesota), and comprise one of the northwesternmost Hopewellian sites in North America. Indian Mounds Regional Park is a component of the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area, a unit of the National Park System.

The Lost Forty - MN - June 2018
The Lost Forty is a old growth forest in Minnesota that was mistakenly marked on a surveyors map as wetlands and was never forested back in 1882. The trees are said to be ~300-400 years old.
About four hours north of Minneapolis near the town of Blackduck is where The Lost Forty is located. Directions are easy enough to get there, however if you use your cell phone for directions you may not have service all the way back into this park area.
The parking area has a very nice outhouse and a picnic table and the trail is only about a mile long. The trail is easy to hike with no real elevation changes. Be sure to bring bug spray though, they can get really thick. While most of the really large trees have fallen over in the wind storms there are a few very large select trees along the trail and they stick out. Thanks for watching.
St. Paul 4K60fps - Driving Downtown - Minnesota, USA
Saint Paul (abbreviated St. Paul) is the capital and second-most populous city of the U.S. state of Minnesota. As of 2018, the city's estimated population was 307,695. Saint Paul is the county seat of Ramsey County, the smallest and most densely populated county in Minnesota. The city lies mostly on the east bank of the Mississippi River in the area surrounding its point of confluence with the Minnesota River, and adjoins Minneapolis, the state's largest city. Known as the Twin Cities, the two form the core of Minneapolis–Saint Paul, the 16th-largest metropolitan area in the United States, with about 3.6 million residents.
Founded near historic Native American settlements as a trading and transportation center, the city rose to prominence when it was named the capital of the Minnesota Territory in 1849. The Dakota name for Saint Paul is Imnizaska. Regionally, the city is known for the Xcel Energy Center, home of the Minnesota Wild, and for the Science Museum of Minnesota. As a business hub of the Upper Midwest, it is the headquarters of companies such as Ecolab. Saint Paul, along with its twin city, Minneapolis, is known for its high literacy rate.
The settlement originally began at present-day Lambert's Landing, but was known as Pig's Eye after Pierre Pig's Eye Parrant established a popular tavern there. When Lucien Galtier, the first Catholic pastor of the region, established the Log Chapel of Saint Paul (shortly thereafter to become the first location of the Cathedral of Saint Paul), he made it known that the settlement was now to be called by that name, as Saint Paul as applied to a town or city was well appropriated, this monosyllable is short, sounds good, it is understood by all Christian denominations.

Art S.'s Review on The Dyrt:
▶︎ One in a series of gorgeous state parks along north Lake Superior
Cascade River State Park is a popular place. In fact all the state parks are along the coast of Lake Superior. There are beautiful hiking trails and access to the Superior Hiking Trail. I made reservations 2 weeks before coming here and was limited in my choices. I had to move to 3 different sites in order to have a longer stay.
The rangers have limited hours so I got my Minnesota State Park pass and went on to my site. Site 6e was near the toilet, garbage and water. The drive to the site was deceptive. The park may be large but the campground is small. Campsites are close together. On site 19 and 11e I had more privacy but 6e put us on display. Many people stopped by to ask about my camper. Even being close together, I still felt comfortable in my own space at each site. The vault toilets was immaculate and the shower house was pristine. Site 6e had the best cell reception but I got a little at the other sites.
The rangers stopped by to talk. I left them a note asking for some guidance and they promptly followed through. Wonderful people! They even offered to give me an overflow spot so I wouldn’t have to move around.
Hiking trails are the best! Drive to each river and you will find they are each unique. Grand Marais has a perfect donut shop. Drive away from the coast to visit Wild Country Maple Products and get fresh maple syrup - don’t forget the maple candy. Michael was a friendly owner who took time to talk about the entire process. He might even take you on a tour.
Inside tip: consider staying a night or two at different state parks and work your way down the coast.

Explore Minnesota: Minnihaha Park 2012
Music by Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)
Overlooking the Mississippi River, Minnehaha Park is one of Minneapolis' oldest and most popular parks, attracting over 850,000 thousand visitors annually. Located at the intersection of Hiawatha Avenue and Minnehaha Parkway, the 193-acre park features a 53-foot waterfall, limestone bluffs and river overlooks. The park contains oak, elm, silver maple, basswood, hackberry and cottonwood trees, as well as native and prairie woodland wild flowers. In addition to its natural beauty, Minnehaha Park is home to several sculptures. A mask of Chief Little Crow is positioned near Minnehaha Falls. The mask commemorates the chief, who was killed in the year following the 1862 Dakota conflict, and is in an area considered to be sacred to American Indians. Minnehaha Falls and the land surrounding it became one of the first state parks in the United States when it was purchased by the state of Minnesota in 1889. More information about Minnehaha and other parks is included in Parks, Lakes, Trails and So Much More, a richly detailed account of the histories of Minneapolis' renowned recreational system.
America's wilderness is for sale
We need more copper. Is it worth destroying this place?
Subscribe to our channel!
The Trump administration has opened up America's public lands to mining and fossil fuel companies on an unprecedented scale, lifting decades-long protections from millions of acres of wilderness across the country. In Minnesota, one proposed copper mine is pitting neighbors against each other as they weigh the benefits of new mining jobs against the environmental consequences of new mines. It’s an old American debate that’s been further complicated here by an unforgiving reality: We need copper, and there are not that many places to get it.

Rivers where you can still find gold
There's still gold in these hills
The gold rushes of the 19th century have long since ended, but there are still plenty of places you can hunt for the precious metal using a shovel, pan, metal detector and more. In fact, recreational gold mining is a pastime these days for many people, and for good reason: the largest nugget ever found in California was discovered by an amateur. Here are some key locations worldwide that you can still prospect for the yellow metal – you never know, you may get lucky and strike it rich.
