Hello! Rested and feeling better we venture our to Great River Bluffs State Park!

Hello Everybody! Decided to spend our last day in the greater Minneapolis area, right in the heart of the city! Like the adventures of the week, the downtown area was no disappointment!

Hi Everyone! Well if you have to wait for a flight to arrive, this is the place to do it.
