In April I stopped by a state park and found out that this year is the 125th anniversary of Minnesota State Parks. To commemorate that, the parks have created a program to encourage using the trails. Individuals can try to bike, boat, or hike 125 miles in state parks or state trails this year. So far I am at 15 miles, all hiking. I hope to do some biking and canoeing, too. So far, I have been to some of the closer parks...Charles Lindbergh, Lake Carlos, and Sibley. I hope to get to Fort Snelling, Lake Itasca, Lake Maria, and Crow Wing parks soon.
