Greetings – and many thinks for your visit! We loved seeing you and catching up our news. Will call later on regarding our St Paul Visit.
Minnesota is our 32nd state (1858). Capitol St Paul. Name derived from the Sioux Indians, meaning sky-tinted water. Its 10,000 lakes are said to have been made by Paul Bunyan’s blue ox, Babe. Longfellow’s famous poem The Song of Hiawatha, tells of the Minnesota waterfalls that “flashed and gleamed” and rivers that rushed through “palisades of pine trees”.
