A couple of weekends back, I hiked around the Interstate State Park in Taylor’s Falls, Minnesota. The beautiful four-mile hike that I would rate as easy.
I was fortunate to have great weather and NO mosquitos for the duration of my stay—gorgeous views of the St. Croix River, although most of the hike is in the deep woods. Half of the route I took was along an old abandon railroad path. At the end are a couple of historic buildings ( 1902 rail station and one of the oldest schoolhouses in Minnesota).
As I left, I got to see and go across the new St. Croix Crossing bridge, a real work of art. Kudos to the design and build on this bridge is nothing short of stunning, and I think it gives the Golden-gate Bridge a run for its money.
