Minnesota: Land of 10,000 Lakes
MINNESOTA is our 32nd State (1858) Capital:St. Paul. Name derived from the Sioux Indian, meaning sky-tinted water. Its 10,000 lakes are said to have been made by Paul Bunyan's Blue Ox Babe.Longfellow's famous poem The Song of Hiawatha tells of Minnesota's waterfalls that "flashed and gleamed" and rivers that rushed through palisades of pine trees."
