I started at Banning State Park and then headed south towards my campsite for the night at William O’Brien State Park. I have visited this wonderful Minnesota State Park many times and continue to find it an enjoyable park to hike, camp, kayak, and fly fish. Close to the Twin Cities and a short drive to one of my other favorite places Forest Lake this park is nestled along the St Croix River.
We are currently busy planning, selecting items, packing and repacking for our upcoming road trip. Are you excited to find out where we are going?
While planning for this vacation I had hoped to find a way to kayak or fly fish. Once the kayak idea evaporated due to scheduling and logistics I started looking into fly fishing. How cool would it be to say I fly fished in Scotland!
Now that I am back in The Netherlands I have a bit of time to reflect on my trip last month to Minnesota. Once I finally dipped my kayak in the water at Big Marine Lake I spent the last few days I had of my visit exploring the areas around the Southern edge of the lake.
I enjoy the quiet of the near empty campgrounds.
