We're pleased to report we had three correct guesses for the May WVFW. Take it away, river viewers!
Matthew Pahs: "That's the Point Douglas Bridge, significant because it carries US-10 over the location where the St Croix terminates into the Mississippi River, and the beginning of the Point Douglas to Superior Military Road."
Ron Middlestaedt: "Looks to me like this was taken from the west end of the north sidewalk of the Highway 10 bridge at Prescott, [Wisc.] looking northeast. I don't get down that way much but when I do, I always find a way to look around at the quaintness of the town and the many recreational opportunities of the river."
Linus Mickus: "This is from the Hwy 10 bridge going into Prescott, Wisconsin where the St. Croix and Mississippi meet. I’ve spent a lot of time boating down there — great location."
About “Whose view? From where?”
Each month in this section, we feature a photo somewhere along the river corridor in the Twin Cities that is in some way significant or important or just plain scenic. Individuals may then e-mail us and identify the view and explain why they believe it is significant to the community or important to them personally. We’ll publish some of your responses in the next issue of Mississippi Messages, where we will also reveal the correct answer.
To submit your guess and response, e-mail Bob Spaulding, River Advocate, through our contact form. The respondent to provide the first correct identification of the view and hopefully some interesting thoughts about its significance will receive a valuable prize for their effort. All entries must be received by the first day of the following month for consideration.
