Even if you live in a city, you can probably find a trail to reconnect with nature. This trail is very close to St. Paul, Minnesota’s capitol city. Larpenteur Avenue is the border. The city seems far away once you are just a few steps in from the parking lot. If you have dogs, let them run free in one of the two off leash areas. Both are right next to the parking lot on Larpenteur Avenue.
I thought that if I stood there long enough, the deer would move and I would have exciting wildlife footage. They outlasted me. On the way back I saw the same deer family again. This time they did cross my path, but they were further away.
