A Grand Day Out

Yesterday my niece joined me and the kids for a long day of adventuring. We started at Crystal Cave in Spring Valley, WI.

   
      

Then we headed over to Prescott, a small town on the Mississippi River. At the information center, I learned a lot about the history of the area. If only we’d learned this in school, rather than rote memorization of dates and events, I bet a lot of us would have paid more attention.

   
         

Lastly, we went to Kinnickinnic State Park, where we hoped to hit a beach, but Mosquitos and poor signage had the best of us.

   
 

At least we learned a little something, and got to see where the St Croix and Mississippi rivers converge. 

Big day! Today we took it easier!
