Susan and Allan and all,
Yes there is maps of leech lake area.It is on one of mine but just
off the map on the one i posted.sorry.
Allan,there is this sweet water sea i have found covering
minnesota.I believe there have been a few mistakes that have lead
others to believe too that lake huron or superior are the sweetwater
seas. BUT wild rice takes shallow water and it has to be flowing and
fresh. Here in ottertail county,,,is the highest place in the
state,,,and the little shallow hills of the walker and leech lake area
are the stones the little boy dreamed of that were the stepping stones
to the turtle. Here the vikings met the indians and gave them
fire,drums and medi.Here too in ottertail county we have 450 mounds I
have records for that are small, large and huge and have not been
explained or examined.Ten years ago i found these records and started
my search for a viking connection.
In july i found a high water mark at about 1500 feet,,and then the
shoreline of the largest island( the turtle), and then the sweet water
sea. On the edge of this island i have found a mooring stone and a
earthlodge and a viking harpon tip and a story of a ship in a swamp
where that would have been impossible if not for that sweet water sea.
SO now the pieces of the puzzle are starting to fit!HELP,please!
A few years ago while interviewing a elder farmer living on the west
shore of this new sea,, Delmar told me that a neighbor,Rubin
arvidson,who died 50 years ago,had kidded him that the first settlers
would take a boat from Delmars farm east ten miles to eagle bend.They
thought he was nuts. Leonard roseinquist claimed he found a ship on
this same shore,,they thought he was a bit goofy.Olaf Ohman found a
stone 30 miles from here and they claimed it was a fake.Holland and
Marion found mooring stones and have spent the last 100 years looking
for ancient vikings here..not to many people believed these guys
either...Archaeology experts will not except that vinland is in
minnesota...but the experts also once claimed the world was flat.
thank you for your imput
