June 17:  Lake Itasca State Park, MN

A slow rise to the day, breakfast at the lodge and then a boat ride around the lake for some, a hike for others, a visit to the headwaters maybe or even a bike ride around the park.  All activities to enjoy on the final day of the trip.

Tomorrow some head to Minneapolis and flights home, others are venturing north on bikes to the Canadian border, others are driving home with family members who have met them at the end.  Talk of other trips in the future are mentioned, but conversations of this experience dominate.  Life on the Mississippi River has a new meaning to everyone on this trip now.
