My husband and son love to fish…for hours! Me- not so much! I like to fish, don’t get me wrong, but after about an hour or so I’m longing for a camp chair and a paperback. So I go with them sometimes on their fishing excursions, more to humor them than anything else, but I always make sure I have a book or two with me. On this day My Book & I found ourselves at the Pike Creek Boat Ramp in Minnesota’s Morrison County.
Even though it looks like a small little watering hole it became increasingly busy as the day progressed. Not catching anything here the guys decided to try fishing a little further down the road at Blanchard Dam about 10 miles outside of Royalton, Minnesota.
The place I am standing here, overlooking Blanchard Dam, is a paved bike trail that was once railroad tracks used by the Soo Line Railroad. The entire trail is 226 miles long, but I am standing on the southern route of the trail that spans 114 miles from just a little south of where I am here, to Superior, Wisconsin. It’s a beautiful bike trail and one I hope to do my 50 mile bike trip with my son to complete his Bicycling Merit badge.
So that’s where My Book & I were. Where were you?
Stop back tomorrow for my review of Winter of My Disconnect by Susan Maushart.
