Minnesota

Postcard courtesy of Rhonda Fochs

"Minnesota" is a Dakota (Sioux) Indian word meaning "sky blue waters." Minnesota is known as the Land of 10,000 Lakes. Of all the 50 states, only Alaska is more north than Minnesota. Our state bird is the Loon. The Mississippi river starts in Minnesota. The Mall of America is in Bloomington, MN. Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House on the Prairie was in Walnut Grove, MN. We hope you can visit our state someday.

Caption: Autumn River: During fall, the beautiful St. Louis River is framed by sunset splashed leaves. Temperature and moisture influence the array of fall colors. Warm, sunny days and cool, crisp nights produce the most spectacular color displays. Fall colors peak in Jay Cooke State Park at the end of September.
