The “Kinni,” as it is affectionately known in the surrounding region, is a superb Class 1 trout water stream which originates in the center of St. Croix County and flows 20 miles southwest before merging with the St. Croix River.
At its midpoint sits the only city on the river, River Falls.
In Lewis Carrol’s Alice in Wonderland, Alice finds herself at a weird tea party with the Mad Hatter and the March Hare. The Hatter explained that he escaped decapitation by the Queen of Hearts for “murdering time.” “Mad as a hatter” referred to symptoms of poisoning caused by inhaling mercury fumes given off by an old process used in making felt hats.
