Natural Features

   

King’s and Queen’s Bluff SNA lies within the park.

The park lies within the borders of the Richard J. Dorer Memorial Hardwood Forest. This part of the state is the “driftless” area of Minnesota, untouched by the last series of glaciers over the last 12,000 years.

Camping weekend, the color was unexpectedly late this year but the views were none the less, great. Eight miles of hiking over the two days and a steady heavy rain on Saturday didn't stop a very good weekend.

About

Published on Jul 2, 2012

Hiking the Minnesota State Park just outside of Winona with the children in tow. Boys imagined lots of great adventures along the way. Teenagers connected with the earth instead of the t.v. And us parents enjoyed the beauty, exercise, and watching the kids play with sticks like they were the best toy on the planet.
