Two Canoeists To Paddle 110 Mile-Long Sauk River [AUDIO]

ST. CLOUD – Two men are gearing up to canoe the 110 mile length of the Sauk River.

Todd Foster of St. Cloud and Scott Miller of Minneapolis will begin the trek on Sunday from where the river starts at Lake Osakis all the way to St. Cloud, where it empties into the Mississippi.

The trip is expected to take 8 days. Each evening, Miller and Foster will host ‘meet and greets’ in towns along the river. They’ll also be blogging along the way.

The timing of the trip is calculated; it was organized in honor of the 25th Anniversary of the Sauk River Watershed District, an organization that advocates for the river and encourages citizens to take advantage of what it has to offer.

Miller says canoeing on a river is a much different experience than paddling on a lake because typically, you’ll see a much wider range of landscapes.

Foster says he and Miller have been canoeing partners for 16 years, even making the 2,000 mile trek from St. Cloud to the Hudson Bay.
