September 30, 2011 – Day 22 – 8.5 miles
I awoke early and parted ways with my host to explore more of this grand city. I spent hours aimlessly walking Minneapolis and taking in all that it had to show me. Much like my time on the canoe, walking gives me a chance to travel slowly and be more connected to my surroundings. It wasn’t until late afternoon that I finally started paddling again. This made for a short day on the river where I enjoyed the still natural areas inbetween the Twin Cities.
