One of my favorite places to walk is the MN Landscape Arboretum. Today we were here for Arboretum Outdoors with Hoigaards. I love my job! I got to come out and do 2 beautiful walks on trail this afternoon. The hardest thing is deciding which trail to take.
The first walk at 1pm found us taking off the rubber tips, extending our poles just a bit and heading off into the woods on the Ridge Trail. There was just enough of a breeze to keep the mosquitos away 🙂 This summer trail is a winter XC trail so it meanders through the woods, up and down the hills and skirts the edge of the wetlands along the way. It felt so good to be off the hard pavement, giving my body a break. We even got buzzed by some gigantic dragon flies under the trees.
Hard to believe we’re just a few miles west of Minneapolis!
