obviously i've been slacking off for quite a while on the adventures - only understandable, given the regularity of my groinstrong posts and my new job as chief correspondent for cobble hill blog. but this picture inspired me to post again. i'm thinking maybe a new picture every day will give me something to write about.
this is a photo from bemidji, a town in northern minnesota and the heart of paul bunyan country. my grandparents were able to visit our cabin on a lake near bemidji a couple of times before my grandfather passed away earlier this year, and this remains one of my favorite photos of them.
kathryn and i are headed to the lake in a couple weeks and could not be more excited. there are few places on earth where i'm able to fully and completely relax. here's a slideshow from the last trip we made back in 2008 which included a visit to itasca, the headwaters of the mississippi. i heart minnesota! at least in the spring, summer, and fall.
