A subtle season on the river

Support our work to stay connected to the St. Croix River throughout the year.

November on the river can be a little bleak — though it’s always beautiful. The sky may be gray, but the last migrants fly south across it. The water looks like cold steel, yet still flows unceasingly. The trees have lost their leaves, revealing the contours of the landscape.

Summer’s sun and color are replaced by quiet and calm. While I love warm water and sunny days, I also seek out this season’s stillness and solitude.

If you enjoy staying connected to the St. Croix River all year long, please consider supporting St. Croix 360 today.

Winter will be here soon, but fall holds fast for now. It’s time to prepare for the frozen season ahead — storing food and firewood, flying south or digging a deep den. The St. Croix River has its own subtle cycles.
