In the early autumn of 2007, Carl Henry sat with Roxi, his black Labrador retriever. Roxi’s adventurous spirit often led her to chase down animals, like the turkey vultures that circled above the two of them that day.
While Roxi had her attention fixed onto the soaring scavengers, Henry snapped a photo of his companion. Looking back, he said, that was one of the reasons that the savanna is his “favorite place in the world.”
Henry is the president of the Friends of the Cannon River Wilderness Area, which works with local volunteers and the county’s parks department to maintain and preserve the Cannon River Wilderness Area northeast of Faribault.
