We drove as far as Winona MN before heading back south through the Root River scenic area.
The many towns we passed through were still a bit sleepy from the winter but, come summer will be bursting with bicyclists, fisherman, canoes, floaters......
we had beautiful blue skies and warm weather to celebrate all is well.
