About

Nov 3, 2020

We decided to stop at Sibley State Park on our way back from Lake Carlos State Park. We didn't stay for too long, but we had fun hiking around some of the main attractions at the park. We checked out the swimming area, the campgrounds, and hiked up the trail to Mt. Tom. We called this one a Park Caper because we were thinking about doing more shorter videos, but decided to just keep them all as normal Park Adventures.
