GREAT LAKES STATES BY THE NUMBERS: Minnesota
- Editor H2ONotes [ 10/8/2010 - 06:46 ] #Another
beautifully-named place, Minnesota, like Wisconsin, Illinois, and Ohio,
is a state named after a river. The Dakota word means "sky blue
water" or "water that reflects the sky" and I was intrigued to learn

how learning their meanings actually can resest one's view of a region
and not only help foster appreciation of that region's attributes, but

that they were the very reason for the name itself. more...

What’s on your Great Lakes bucket list?
- Editor H2ONotes [ 10/7/2010 - 07:39 ] #“The glaciers made you, and now you’re mine” is a song lyric from a
Canadian folk rock band called the Great Lakes Swimmers. The song —
“Your Rocky Spine” — is a metaphoric love poem about the region.
The words perfectly capture the affinity I now feel for Lake Michigan.
