One Saturday a few weeks ago, we got up early to head three hours north to Grand Rapids. We wanted to visit the Forest History Center for their special Stomping on Winter Day and still have time to get back to the Cities before a big snowstorm.
I visited twice last year — once in June and once in October — and this sign makes more sense during winter!
We started the day with a raptor show by Nature Connection from Bemidji
then headed outside.
We took a ride on a horse-drawn carriage
and sledding down a hill
and even bowled with a frozen turkey.
We finished the day by showshoeing through the woods.
Date of visit: February 24, 2018
