A Walk in the Woods

We needed to retreat into the woods:scamp

It’s my favorite place to be:

We stayed in Paul Bunyon State Forest, but there was no sign of the lumberjack or his blue ox:

This guy was there though and based on his yelling, he was NOT happy to see us:

We hiked a quarter mile of the North Country National Scenic Trail before the mosquitoes got the best of us:

And joined the tourists at the Mississippi Headwaters in Itasca State Park:

I was in awe of the oldest white pine in the park, it is more than 300 years old:

And by its younger siblings:

The wildflowers were in bloom:

We had a lot of fun together:

While we missed the Super Moon by one night, we thought ours was pretty darn super:

And what’s a camping trip without a campfire?
