Northern Minnesota Road Trip
No matter where we are in this beautiful country we alway try to do a little research about the area and then take off on a road trip with the jeep. Northern Minnesota does not lack for points of interest and when we see a beautiful picture we park the car----get out----and get the best picture we can.
Our focus for the road trip was to visit a small rv park on the U.S. side of Crane Lake. The park is located in a very unique spot and what interested us was it reportedly had 50amp, water and sewer hook-ups and we wanted to explore it for a possible future stop. On our stop we got out to photo our beautiful U.S. flag and look across the water to Canada.
Once we had checked out the park it was time to use the jeep for what it is made and take off on some of the Forrest roads in the area in search of the Vermillion River Falls. We knew it would probably really be boiling the water as there had been so much rain this past week. We also knew it would require a little hiking to view it but my partner with the sore hip was game to give it a try. That hip hurts like "H" but Kathleen is a real trooper and saluted me by holding that walking stick high above her head.
The beauty all along our hike was worth the pain, we both agreed. Some of the rapids and pools between them reminded us of the many canoe and portaging trips we made when we were first married and made numerous trips to camp in this part of the country.
