About

Feb 6, 2019

A day we just had to get out after having -33F temps after the week of the Polar Vortex. We went out to Miesville Ravine Park Reserve. just southwest of Red Wing, Minnesota and had ourselves a walk and a winter picnic.

We love comments but please remember we are family friendly.
