After a week of rain, ice and snow, today felt like Spring! The sun was shining with fluffy clouds scattered across the sky; a perfect day for a hiking adventure. The trails throughout the park were well marked and nicely paved.
The winding trail allowed us to see different tree groves and areas of wetlands.
We even found some pussy willows.
Even though the trees are bare, they offer their own beauty as they dance with the wind.
We briefly left the park to visit the still frozen Arctic Lake. The lake is on the Mdewakanton Tribally owned land.
As we looped back to our starting point, we stopped and watched people play pickleball at the Spring Lake Park Pickleball Court. I definitely need to learn how to play pickleball!
Today’s hiking adventure was 6 miles.
