On June 8th a daughter of Ottawa County will be heading on a grand adventure, and we have been invited along. Woodmore graduate Madelyn Hille, 23, and her partner Adam Hoffmeister, 25, will set out with their canoe and their dog Joschko to paddle and capture the Mississippi--all 2500 miles of it, beginning at the headwaters at Itasca State Park in Minnesota and ending with the Gulf of Mexico.
Along the way Hille, an aspiring photojournalist now living in Indianapolis, will be documenting the trip. She will select one photo each day that captures that day’s experience, then compile the photos into a hard-cover book titled “Capturing the Mississippi”. Madelyn will also be sharing photos each week with Beacon readers.
