I was recently invited to join a blog circle called The Minnesota Project. I love the idea of getting out and exploring my own state, and photographing my adventures to share with others. As a Minnesotan you either hate or love winter. Although fall is my favorite season, I do love winters… so long as the windchill isn’t crazy cold, I like getting outside when I can.
Recently my sister and her family came home from Hawaii to visit for Christmas. Her boys wanted to enjoy the snow while they were here, and that is exactly what we did. We went to Three Rivers Park at Elm Creek in Maple Grove, MN to go snow tubing. It was such a blast! The kids had such a great time and were quite exhausted by the end of our two hour run.
I’ve seen others post pictures and say how much fun it was, and yet still this was our first time snow tubing. I will say be prepared to wait as it was very busy, we waited about an hour before we could even get in line to pay. But as soon as we got on the hill, we found out it was definitely worth the wait. They also had a trail for cross-country skiing and a small hill for beginner-level downhill skiing/snowboarding. This is for sure something we will be doing again!
Well I look forward to my next outing, thanks for taking the time to read my blog and looking through my images. Be sure to circle through all of the other Minnesota adventures, next up is Emily Ockwig.
