|Smooth Sumac in Bloom|
During the Saturday morning Nature Walk Program we learned about Smooth Sumac. Since it was in bloom we got to sample it's lemony buds, which I learned make a great citrusy drink.
|Boats gather at Sand Point|
Another hike in the park was Sand Point which took us through a very buggy wet area along the Mississippi, to a nice little gathering spot for boaters to set anchor.
|Sand Point Trail Shelter|
We enjoyed our first Minnesota State Park and found the campers there are just as nice. A family from the Twin Cities area shared their favorite stories.
Now that we have a MN State Sticker we have our sites set on Whitewater and Mystery Cave parks for 2017.
