Comments

This is Minnesota’s largest state park.

Unlike Itasca State Park this park does not have a designated wildlife drive. However, it does have 25 miles of forrested road to explore between St. John’s Landing in the east and Maple Island and Eagle Bend in the west.

Took a two night "gear testing" trip to a Minnesota State Park. Only had a short time to camp and it was weapon deer hunting season opener so I had to be careful where I hung my hammock. Was going way up North but lots of the Superior Hiking Trail closed on Nov. 8 for hunting and time was already short.

St. Croix trails are multi use so the hike is not challenging but camp time was fun in the cold rain, wind and snow flurries. Long walks as the park is HUGE.

The usual palaver as well as some "Gear Gab". Check out the "Stickpic"by Rodney Java http://thestickpic.com and the "Bushwacker Wood Burning Stove" by J. Falk. http://www.trailgear.org

Pop Tart Talk as well. Mmmmm.

More "Gear Gab" and stuff in Part 2.....coming soon!

Thanks for joining me.
