It's finally the off-season so that means we get to take a vacation for some good 'ole family fun! Josh and I had been mulling over where to go this year, but since we wanted to keep expenses low we decided to head out to Colorado to visit his parents, and spend a few extra days driving home through South Dakota. In the 16 years we have been doing the drive out there, we have never taken this route home. Jokes on us! We've been missing out on some serious scenery this entire time!
If you live in Minnesota, chances are you either have a family cabin that you frequent or you have friends that do. We are fortunate enough to have one of our own that my grandparents purchased back in the 60's and we still go to to this day. It's nestled about 3 hours north of the cities on a serene lake that really doesn't see all that much boat traffic. It has it's fair share of pontoons and fishing boats but nothing like the traffic you can see on some of the lakes in the city. Which makes it the perfect getaway for the weekend, where you can breathe in that fresh country air and see stars like you've never seen them before! We've also seen some pretty awesome wildlife up there in our day. One time we had a family of black bears in the tree right out our front door!
Hey there -
I'm Bri! Lover of food, wine, and photography that is currently traveling with my professional bass fishing husband along with our cantankerous rottie, Kigen. When not traveling you can find me living the lake life off the shores of Lake Mille Lacs in Isle, MN. Pour a drink, pull up a chair and join me as I journey across the country documenting it all along the way!
