Palokki Rapids

These web­sites tell about our com­mon nation­al trea­sure, Palokinkos­ki, part­ly slum­ber­ing under the reser­voir and part­ly becom­ing forest­ed as it dries up. The amount of his­to­ry asso­ci­at­ed with the fate of the rapids over hun­dreds of years is enor­mous. Although the sites pro­vide a fair­ly good pic­ture of the nature of the free-flow­ing rapids and the life along the river­banks, many details are still left unde­scribed.”
