“It’s really gorgeous,” said Austin Aho, a coordinator of the Mississippi River Challenge. “It’s undeveloped. It feels like the Boundary Waters. I was out there last weekend, and we saw baby eagles.”

Aho also urged people to consider the annual Mississippi River Challenge, coming up July 27-28. The fundraiser travels a stretch of the river along Dakota County as part of its course.

“All skill levels are welcome,” Aho said.
