The hard basalt found in this area was formed more than a billion years ago. Its toughness stands in stark contrast to the soft sandstone which makes up much of the St. Croix Valley’s bedrock. The St. Croix River flows through a channel in the basalt carved by the great flood caused by melting glaciers at the end of the last Ice Age.
The Taylors Falls riverboats also show up in a few shots. These boats offer daily tours of the area. Click here for more info.
