South Central Minnesota has rolling hills, lakes, and a mix of prairie and deciduous forests. This park is at the Southeast edge of the Twin Cities metropolitan area. I imagine it is a big deal to the people that live there whether or not this park is labeled as Metro Area or SE Minnesota. If you have a strong feeling on this, please comment!
An errand in Waconia meant that I drove past the DQ in Victoria. That is where you turn north off Hwy 5 to go to this place full of well maintained trails through woods and marsh.
I am late in publishing this. A post every Wednesday at 7:00AM U.S. Central Time is the goal I have set for myself. It is good to have goals. It is good to be kind to yourself when you fall short. I think I have typed those exact words many times. Here is another opportunity to help someone else hear them.
