A Weekend in Bluff Country

My family and I spent the weekend camping, biking, kayaking, perusing, hiking, mushroom-hunting, and watching Amish people in Southeastern Minnesota. It was wonderful!

I could talk about a lot, but I'll only talk about the first night at the campground in Lanesboro. After a delicious dinner, we decided to go for a family bike ride. It was misty and dark, but it was one of the best times of the weekend.

The region looks a little like the Shire (which I realize makes me sound dorky), and with the mist and the flowering trees, we couldn't help but enjoy ourselves immensely.

And then it rained. In fact, it poured.

And it was lovely.

Lanesboro is BEAUTIFUL! I'm jealous that you got to go down there for the weekend. I can't wait for my chance! I think I'm going in July...

Saying it looked like the Shire makes your cool-o-meter go really high in my book.

But the fact that I have a cool-o-meter is probably evidence of my uncool status. So, maybe being called cool by someone like me is like a back-handed compliment.

In which case, I apologize.
