Thanks to photographer Kelly Nechuta of Hayward for this video of the beauty and wonder of the Wild & Scenic upper Namekagon River.

Featuring footage from many river access points between Hayward and Seeley, there are also great shots of her kids exploring the woods – each branch drooping under sticky snow.
