A

century ago, stories are told of families arriving at the Park Rapids train station for a summer vacation, a driver with horse and buggy greeting the haggard guests. They had ridden hours, arriving from Minneapolis-St. Paul and out of state – ­ Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska… After a stop at the area mercantile establishment for some flour, sugar and other basic necessities it was off to the cabin on the lake. Fishing. Swimming. Lounging on the beach. Card games. Catching fireflies. Watching squirrels skirmish. Picnics. Reading a good book. Times may have changed. But the overall lure of vacation on the lake remains. Reconnecting with nature and family. Giggles and goggles. Bonfires and burgers. Loons and fish. May we offer some insights on the panorama of fun the north woods has to offer…

Loony Tunes

Nothing symbolizes the beauty of northern Minnesota more than the haunting call of the loon, our state bird. Few birds use sound to communicate in as many ways as loons do. Scientists have categorized common loon calls into four main types, each conveying a unique message. Hoot: A loon gives a hoot – a soft, short call – to let other loons know where it is or to ask another loon where it is. A parent might hoot to its chick, or one of a pair to another. Tremolo: The wavering tremolo call – sometimes likened to maniacal laughter – means a loon is excited or alarmed. Loons also use the tremolo when they fly over a lake to announce their presence to any loons there. Yodel: Only male loons make this loud sound, which starts with three notes and ends with a couple of swinging phrases. They use it to defend their territory. Each male has a “signature” yodel. Some people have learned to recognize a specific loon by his yodel. Wail: The high, haunting wail helps loons to figure out where they are relative to each other. They call back and forth, using the location of the sound to move closer together. Do your part to protect loons. Minnesota’s loon population is threatened by loss of breeding habitat, water contamination and direct human disturbance to shoreline nests. Watch loons from at least 200 feet away. It’s particularly important to stay away from nesting loons. Be a responsible boater – never chase loons and use only non-lead fishing sinkers and jigs. 1

Picking wild fruits of the forest

Gathering wild berries was a necessity in the past. Now it’s a pleasurable recreational activity. Berry production varies from year to year, but different types of edible berries can be found all summer long. Wild raspberry, wild strawberry and low bush blueberry are the three shrubs that provide the most commonly harvested berries in Minnesota.

Wild raspberry Wild raspberry plants can typically be found in sunny areas. Land that has been burned or logged in previous years is a good place to begin looking or along the edges of trails and roads. It is a low, arching, prickly shrub from one to five feet high. Wild raspberries flower during June of their second year and begin producing berries in their third year. Fruit begins ripening in mid-July and continues through August.

Wild blueberry This is a low bush, growing from six inches to two feet high. It is found in sandy soil, open woods and clearings. It’s often found surrounded by coniferous trees, such as jack and red pine. Bell-shaped white or pinkish flowers bloom in late May or early June. Berries begin as white, pale blue or green and mature to round, dark blue berries in July and August.

Currant This is a low shrub, two to five feet high. It’s found in moist places, cool woods and thickets. The fruit is very sour, round, smooth and ranges in color from pink to dark red. It ripens in late June and July. It can be used for jelly and jam. Juneberry Commonly known as Serviceberry or Saskatoon, it’s a shrub or small tree growing six to 20 feet high with white, five-petaled blossoms. The fruit, which ripens in late June or July, is round and almost black when mature. It can be eaten fresh or used for jams. It also makes a fine beverage.

Wild strawberry If you look close to the ground alongside a sunny path in the woods, you might spy the bright, red berries of wild strawberry. Each plant is two to six inches tall and spreads above the ground on “runners.” A plant has three leaflets that look like toothy ovals. The berries are tinier than garden or market strawberries, but taste better. It blooms in late May and into June with a white, five-petaled flower with a yellow center. Berries will ripen in midJune through most of July. Strawberries are members of the rose family. PARK RAPIDS ENTERPRISE

Elderberry The common or American elderberry is a shrub growing from four to 12 feet tall. it’s found in most soils along roadsides, ditches, streams and in fields. It has creamy clusters of tiny, star-shaped flowers that become round, purplish-black berries in late summer and early fall. The fruit is used for jelly, pies and wine. 2

Other notable plants to watch for during your walk in the woods: Wild sarsaparilla Wild sarsaparilla spreads out from a tall, thick stalk one to two feet high. It likes to grow in shady spots. People brew root beer from the rhizomes. Wintergreen Wintergreen adds a touch of spice to the forest floor. The thick, shiny leaves of this ground-hugging plant give off a strong, fresh smell if you crush them. They are the source of oil of wintergreen, which is used as a flavoring. They also contain methyl salicylate, the active ingredient in aspirin.

Large-leaved aster If you see a plant that stand up to a foot tall with big heart-shaped leaves covering the forest floor, you are probably looking at large-leaved asters. This common plant prefers the dry part of the woods. Aster is Latin for star. In late summer, the petals of blue, lavender or white surround a dish of small yellow flowers. Together, they look like a star. To help cure headaches, some American Indians brewed tea from the roots of large-leaved asters. This plant’s big, soft leaves have a reputation as a pretty good emergency substitute for toilet paper. It’s also known as “lumberjack’s toilet paper.” PARK RAPIDS ENTERPRISE

The Anishinaabe

The largest Indian group in Minnesota calls itself Anishinaabe, which means “the original people.” Europeans named them Ojibwe. No one is exactly sure how this name developed. Perhaps it came from the Anishinaabe word “ojib,” which describes the puckered moccasins worn by

the people. Some Europeans had trouble saying Ojibwe, pronouncing it instead as Chippewa. But both these names refer to the same people. In Canada, the Anishinaabe call themselves Ojibwe. In the U.S., many tribal members prefer the name Chippewa.

Riding the rail

When the railroad was built in Park Rapids in 1891, the depot became the hub of the town and allowed people, including the first tourists, to travel with much greater ease than by stagecoach. The line later became known as Great Northern Railroad.

Main street mystery

The parking on Main Avenue has mystified many visitors. A street wide enough to accommodate center and side parking may be more than a curiosity, though. It is said since Park Rapids originally was a logging community, the street was laid out wide enough to allow teamsters to turn their horses around. It also has been said the street was made wide so piles of lumber could be stacked in the center to dry. Both stories may be right.

680 of the Mississippi River’s 2,522 total miles flows through Minnesota – and it all begins in Hubbard County at Itasca State Park. The name “Minnesota” comes from Dakota Indian words meaning “sky-tinted waters” or “sky-blue waters.” Minnesota has 90,000 miles of shorelines due to its abundance of lakes – that’s more than California, Florida and Hawaii combined.

Itasca State Park Headwaters of the Mississippi Minnesota’s oldest state park celebrates its 126th anniversary this year. Itasca State Park was established on April 20, 1891 to preserve the old growth pine trees that were in danger of being logged. More than half a million people visit Itasca State Park every year to see the giant pines and wade across the headwaters of the Mississippi River State Water Trail. Park Rapids is the undisputed Gateway to Itasca State Park and the south entrance is a 22-mile drive from Park Rapids north on Highway 71.

The headwaters of the mighty Mississippi It’s hard to imagine America’s greatest river as a burble, but if you venture to the Mississippi headwaters in Itasca State Park, you will be able to wade across Huck Finn’s favorite river as it starts its winding journey 2,552 miles to the Gulf of Mexico. The Mary Gibbs Mississippi Headwaters Center offers outdoor displays, a restaurant and gift shop. The walkway to the headwaters also has been enhanced to accommodate the 500,000 park visitors who arrive every year. For more information, call Itasca State Park at at 218-699-7251, email itasca. statepark@state.mn.us or go to www.dnr. state.mn.us/state_parks/itasca/index. html. There are plenty of other activities to do at the park. Other outdoor activities include taking an excursion boat on Lake Itasca, exploring along Wilderness Drive, biking or hiking along more than 30 miles of designated trails, fishing in one of the many lakes, observing the wild flowers in season as well as birding.

Exploring the park Itasca State Park encompasses Lake Itasca, the official source of the Mississippi River, and a scenic area of northern Minnesota that has remained relatively unchanged from its natural state. Today, the park totals more than 32,000 acres and includes more than 100 lakes. Stand under towering pines at Preacher’s Grove. Visit the Itasca Indian Cemetery or Wegmann’s Cabin, landmarks of centuries gone by. Camp under the stars or stay the night at the historic Douglas Lodge or cabins. Explore Wilderness Drive past the 2,000-acre Wilderness Sanctuary, one of Minnesota’s seven National Natural Landmarks. PARK RAPIDS ENTERPRISE

Wild rice has been an important part of the lives and culture of the Anishinaabe Indians who lived in the Great Lakes region, long before the arrival of European immigrants. The Ojibwe word for rice is “manomin.” Minnesota is the leading producer of natural wild rice in the nation. Wild rice has a higher protein content than most cereal grains, making it a good food for wildlife and humans. According to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, wild rice attracts many wild birds, especially waterfowl and red-winged blackbirds, and it also provides nesting cover for waterfowl.

Getting onto your skin: mosquitos, ticks

• Male American dog ticks feed briefly but do not become distended with blood. Once replete, female dog ticks detach from their host and drop into a leaf litter, where they can lay over 4,000 eggs before dying. • Deer ticks, also known as black-legged ticks, live about two years. Adult females are the size of a sesame seed. • Use tweezers to grasp an attached tick close to its mouth. Gently and slowly pull the tick straight outward. Wash the area and apply an antiseptic to the bite. Ticks must remain attached for one to two days to transmit Lyme disease bacteria. • When hiking in wooded areas, wear light-colored clothing so ticks will be more visible. Use a repellent containing DEET or permethrin. After being outdoors, get out of your clothes immediately and do a complete body check. • Lyme disease is named for Lyme, Conn., where scientists first discovered the tickborne infection in 1975.

Mosquitos • There are over 50 species of mosquito in Minnesota, and over 3,000 mosquito species worldwide. • Mosquito eggs can survive for more than five years. • One female mosquito can lay over 200 eggs at one time. • Only female mosquitoes bite and take blood. Male mosquitoes feed only on plant nectar. • Not all mosquito species bite people. Some prefer birds, horses or even frogs and turtles. • Mosquitoes can fly about 1 to 1.5 miles per hour. • Mosquitoes find hosts by sight, by infrared radiation and by chemicals. • Mosquitoes are the primary food for many birds and bats. One bat can eat 200 mosquitoes in one night and birds eat hundreds of mosquitoes every day. Without these mosquito predators, we would really have a mosquito problem!

Paddle through scenic waters There are great opportunities to paddle for kayak or canoe enthusiasts on our rivers and lakes.

Crow Wing River Crystal waters, gentle flow, wilderness setting and numerous campsites along forested riverbanks make the Crow Wing River a draw for both residents and visitors. The Crow Wing River starts at 11th Crow Wing Lake and meanders 90 miles to the Mississippi River. Because of its many campsites and undeveloped shores, the river is one of the state’s best “wilderness” routes for family canoeists. Clear waters are rarely interrupted by rapids, and although the river is seldom more than three feet deep, it is nearly always deep enough for canoeing. Dense forests flank much of the river. For its first 20 miles the river cuts through low marshy lands. The river broadens and the banks increase in height as it flows southward through the Huntersville State Forest. There are 12 public campsites located at convenient intervals along this section of the river. All are scenic and wooded with plenty of room for hiking, bird watching and exploring. Each has fresh water, toilet facilities, picnic tables and fireplaces. Tubing is a popular activity on this part of the river. More information is at www.dnr.state.mn.us/ watertrails/crowwingriver/more.html.

Mississippi River Meander through the most scenic and remote of the Mississippi River’s 2,552 miles. Depending on water levels, a trip can start at the headwaters of the Mississippi in Itasca State Park or at Gulsvig Landing on State Hwy. 200. The first 40 miles of the river wander entirely within the Mississippi Headwaters State Forest. This infant Mississippi is not an easy river to traverse; planning is recommended for a safe trip. In this remote part of the river, there are some lengthy stretches of rocky riffles that can challenge any paddler in high water and create obstacles when in low water – and three large wetlands where even the most experienced wilderness traveler could get lost. The river alternates between these straight, fast segments of river within boreal forests of pine and fir and vast open marshlands of bog, fen, cane grass, cattails and wild rice where the channel can completely disappear. Approaching Bemidji, the river’s banks become more defined and farms and homes become visible. Kayaks and boats are available for rent at Itasca State Park. www.dnr.state. mn.us/watertrails/mississippiriver/one_ more.html. PARK RAPIDS ENTERPRISE
