Video: Flying Voyageurs National Park, in the name of science

If you're heading to Voyageurs National Park, don't count on seeing it from the driver's seat of your car. Canoes, houseboats and snowmobiles are all fine ways to explore, but it's a floatplane that offers a unique — and useful — view of the park.

Ranger pilot Steve Mazur and retired park biologist Lee Grim talk about flying over Minnesota's premiere national park, all in the name of science.
