Yesterday, Cory and I went up to Taylor’s Falls for the day. I’d been there before, several times, but not in a decade or so. I remembered the large potholes, drilled by whirlpools in ancient riverbeds, and doing some climbing around on boulders near the visitor center, but not much else. Seeing it as an adult was like seeing it for the first time. While we were there, we hiked nearly every inch of trail marked on the map. I’m quite sure I’ve never been up Sandstone Bluffs Trail before– incredible views, but so many stairs!
I’m really, really glad we went. Particularly if we do end up moving out of state, I want to take advantage of as much of Minnesota as we can while the weather’s still nice. We’re thinking about going down to one of the caves next weekend, or finding someone with a canoe and heading to a lake.
