Thumb Hill Creek

I had been meaning to explore the white cliffs that are just to the north of Highway 101 and St. Croix – I found the time to poke about so I did.

At first, I thought this was the St. Croix River and that the cliffs were exposed gypsum. Nope – this is actually Thumb Hill Creek and the cliffs are exposed limestone. My mistake was due to the highway crossing a river, with a place name of St.Croix River, and then assuming that this section was part of the St.Croix.

Google is my friend when I research such things, both for maps and links to information about what I am looking at. The satellite view of the area cleared up the name of this section of river.
