We awoke to find the atmosphere was thick with fog again on that early March morning. The fog or mist can emphasize depth, light, shapes, silhouettes and I love the way the water droplets scatter light. The morning brought us to Frontenac, MN a small rural town located on the mighty Mississippi just southeast of Red Wing, MN. Frontenac State Park was our first stop, the park is known as a birdwatchers’ paradise and is one of the best spots in the country to view birds migrating in the spring and fall. If you travel this way, take a nature walk on one of the parks great hiking trails and enjoy the beautiful valley views.
Close by the state park is a small public boat launch located in the historic village of Old Frontenac. A walk along that beach is usually calming but your heart rate can increase when you car chased by some kind of large, dead fish on a stick by someone who will remain nameless… Dan 🙂
After Dan had his fun with the what ever that was on a stick, we packed up our camera gear and headed back on the road. Sometimes we don’t use our GPS and end up near a city that we weren’t intending to visit on that day. I think that is the fun of it all- traveling on back-roads leading to… well, we find out. Passing many photo opportunities along the way, you never know what a day spent traveling on unfamiliar roads will bring.
