The goal of this blog is to encourage YOU to get outside and experience Minnesota’s great outdoor places. Yes it’s the land of 10,000 lakes and I won’t minimize how much fun it is to be out on the water. But! In addition to our amazing water resources we are blessed with readily accessible parks, trails and non lake waterways to search out and explore. So get outside and see what there is to see, I promise you won’t be disappointed. And while you’re at it take along your partner, a friend, a kid…heck whoever because Minnesota’s outdoors are even better when shared with someone else.
