What a treat! This is another of the incredibly well interpreted living history museums of the Minnesota  Historical Society. The visitors center offered some wonderful exhibits on the history and future of forestry as well as a great movie on the last log drive in 1937 and an impressive multimedia presentation on a major forest fire. But the incredible part is visiting a lumber camp on a snowy day in December 1900 and talking with members of the camp staff in costume and in character. It’s amazingly challenging and educational to converse in a different time frame. This morning’s relatively chilly weather helped us make the transition back in time 115 years and 7 months!

All Because of an Eclipse

All Because of an Eclipse

It was a fabulous opportunity to not only view the 2024 Solar Eclipse from within the path of totality but also to enjoy a five day weekend with friends from the T@B trailer community at Ohio’s East Harbor State Park on the shore of Lake Erie.
