Upper St. Anthony Falls Lock & Dam Tour

After we finished at the Capitol, we decided to go for a walk at the Stone Arch Bridge (one of our favorite places in Minneapolis) and we found out they were doing tours of the Lock and Dam! So once again, we played tourist!

Love this picture of the Stone Arch Bridge!  So pretty!

They allow anything from kayaks to barges through this lock and dam which is really neat! I think it would be awful scary going through in a kayak though!

It takes 9 minutes to fill/drain the lock, and it was so neat to watch!  Again, another neat tour for all you Minnesotans!
