Sunset On The Mississippi
UPPER MISSISSIPPI RIVER
Launch: Hastings Marina, Hastings, MN. Steep but good ramp, easy access to the St. Croix and Upper Mississippi River. This marina puts you just a few miles below the head of navigation on the Mississippi. Secure parking for your trip. Nice folks.
CRUISING FROM SAINT TO SAINT
-----Our cruise down the Upper Mississippi took nineteen days, including two days on the St. Croix River along the Wisconsin-Minnesota border. We traveled a total of 667 nautical miles, and used the engines for seventy-two hours. We launched near St. Paul, MN and pulled out at Port Charles Marina near St. Louis.
----- We had a marvelous cruise through beautiful terrain and on a mighty river. The history of the river was always with us. The towns were friendly and had all the services we required. It was a great cruise.
