We took a little time to visit Lake Maria State Park, really to check out the trails. Good trails and looked like good camping (primitive) sites. We plan to back so there will be a pt 2 to this one. If you're in the are be sure to check it out.

One-nighter at rustic Cabin 1 at Lake Maria State Park near Monticello, MN. This video is kind of slow compared to my epic backpacking footage. I pretty much just wandered around with the camera turned on. I filmed the entire process of making miso soup and soba noodles on the Brasslite. It's thrilling stuff! I filmed my hiking partner texting. Ah-maz-ing!

Some details:

For the state park system, "rustic" just means no electricity. There was an amazing woodstove for heat and solar power for sporadic nighttime light. Hike-in took about 15 minutes with lots of lollygagging, not far at all. Conditions were cold and icy, in the single digits for most of the trip. Very little wildlife seen or heard. The stars were stunning, STUNNING. As I say in the video, this cabin would be so romantic... you know, if you're into that kind of thing. Send me email or comment if you have questions about gear, techniques, or anything else. I'd recommend this type of hike-in cabin experience to anyone. Great way to recharge in the winter.
