Fort Snelling State Park

 The Minnesota River next to Pike Island

 Last week, Doug and I enjoyed an easy three mile walk around Pike Island in Fort Snelling State Park.  Surrounded by the Mississippi River on one side and the Minnesota River on the other, the island is a good place to see where the two rivers converge. This was my first visit to the state park, although I've visited Historic Fort Snelling several times.

Our sons would have loved to investigate all the hollowed out trees when they were younger.  I can only imagine the stories they would have made up.
