Encounters

September 28, 2011 – Day 20 – 37 miles

Tomorrow I’ll ride the current into Minneapolis. Before I approach this urban area I’d like to take a chance to list the wildlife I’ve seen on this leg of the trip.

-An assortment of frogs, snakes, and fish

-Around 30 bald eagle sightings

-Lots of little turtles and a few snapping turtles with two foot diameter shells

-Around 20 deer, mostly drinking from the river

-Ducks, geese, and the Great Northern Loon which can dive up to 200 feet underwater when hunting for prey

-River otters, beavers, and minks

-A black bear 15 feet high in an oak tree.  We stared at each other as I passed within 20 yards of it.
