This past weekend, Phaedra, Zander and Izzy joined me for a camping trip in Itasca State Park.  We helped with the Tour de Pines bike ride and we also explored parts of this great state park.

Part of the fun was introducing the kids to the headwaters of the Mississippi River.  You can walk (or swim) across the beginning of the Mighty Miss at the north end of the park.
