— Great River Road Minnesota —Ten thousand years ago, as the Ice Age was drawing to a close, Wisconsin's fast-flowing Chippewa River carried vast quantities of sand. But where the Chippewa entered the Mississippi, ten miles downstream from here, its current slowed and the sand settled to the bottom, forming a natural dam that backed up the waters of the Mississippi. Thus was born Lake Pepin, one of the most beautiful stretches of the Mississippi.
