Here in Maine, winter is slowly slipping away. While the rest of New England is getting peppered with the most snow EVER RECORDED, I spend my 35-degree days (or warmer!) eyeing the ugly mud/grass underfoot. And so I think back to my time in snowy Minnesota over a month ago. Snowshoeing in the not-very-big woods of Nerstrand State Park, snowshoeing in Jay Cooke State Park near Carlton, snowshoeing a lengthy ways to fish in the Cloquet Valley State Forest north of Duluth (although I forgot my camera on that trip).
