Minnehaha Creek running high and fast

Minnehaha Creek

Minnehaha Creek is high and rushing by the Burwell House in Minnetonka Mills. This lovely, rumbling creek is pouring waters into the Misssippi where it will eventually spread across the expanding plains, bayous and levees of Mississipi and Louisianna. The sparkling song of Hiawatha becomes a durge down South.
The Creek is releasing water from Lake Minnetonka at a rate of 250 cubic feet per second. Faster than recommended for “safe canoeing”.
