My Favorite Day
In My Backyard--Itasca State Park Day 2 Continued

Historic Douglas Lodge.

Water Lilies in bloom.

The Honeymoon Cabin (or Old Timer's Cabin). Built from four logs by the Civilian Conservation Corp in the 1930s.

Back to the campsite so D could hit the Wilderness Drive on his bike. This is the before picture. I'd hoped to get an after picture when he arrived home, but he had wiped out and needed some attention. Not only did he check the function of his helmet, but in his crash test, he scraped the heck out of his shoulder and battered and bruised the rest of him. This all happened while landing in a patch of Poison Ivy and providing a diversion for a couple on a tandem bike. "Go big or go home." This occurred 2 miles into the trip. He manly manned his way through the next 15 miles. Said it was still a great ride. And I think his ego hurt more than any of the actual injuries!


  1. oh girl, this place lools like HEAVEN!!

    I'm sorry your honey got banged up!

Taking a little time to play with words, to play with food, and just to play!
