On day two I had already filled my day along the road, yet it was still early, only mid morning. It was 10:30 am Sunday when I headed out of Afton State Park . I continued my trip along the West side of the St Croix River. I knew that the St Croix linked with the Mississippi River around Hastings, Minnesota. I had been there earlier in the Spring and had marked my map on the route I would take.
As I started day two of my Great River Road trip I woke to a mist and the sun peaking over the horizon. I put on my coffee and started the repacking of the car.
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.
I started on 14 Sept on this trip and as I had every intention of keeping a daily log of my trip that soon went right out the window. Below is the first attempt to write.
It has been a whirlwind few weeks. Vacation in the North part of The Netherlands to traveling in the USA.
My most recent journey started at the end of September as I flew into Minnesota from Amsterdam. I took one day to pack my car with all my camping gear and suitcases. Then started my 1975 mile round trip journey along the Great River Road.
Hello everyone. Contrary to rumors of our demise The Cedar Journal is still alive and kicking.
The hubby has been working hard in the Netherlands in hopes that the 737 MAX starts flying again soon so our lives go back to normal.
I travelled the Great River Road from Minnesota to St Louis and back and those travels along with a full hummm file will be available in the coming weeks and months.
Currently I am posting this from up on high, yes from the KLM 787 Dreamliner at 37000 feet (11277m).
This a first for me.
KLM is celebrating 100 years as an airline tomorrow. The MSP departure gate today had it decorated in celebration with cake, stroopwaffles, cheese, and other finger foods. What a nice treat for those of us lucky enough to have a seat on this flight.
So congratulations to KLM and all the professional staff that work so hard to make it a great company. We hope you are around for the next 100 years as well.
