Minnesota

Park Rapids turned out to be a charm­ing rur­al Amer­i­can town. The town had the same unpre­ten­tious feel­ing of the towns that Joyce and I grew up in. Nolan and Nan­cy picked us up and helped us tie down, which was a chore in the gusty wind. We checked in at the hotel, did a tour of the town and vis­it­ed for awhile at the Han­son’s home. We then went to din­ner at a local restau­rant, where I enjoyed the fresh wall­eye. Sun­day we had break­fast at the Han­son’s home then head­ed for Itas­ca State Park, which is the loca­tion of the head waters of the Mis­sis­sip­pi riv­er. We vis­it­ed an exhib­it the tells the sto­ry of the search and dis­cov­ery of the head waters and the build­ing of the park dur­ing the great depression.

Mon­day morn­ing we had break­fast with Nolan and Nan­cy and were off to the air­port for our flight to Duluth. What do you know we actu­al­ly had a tail wind for our short 50 minute flight. We flew into the Supe­ri­or Air­port to meet our friend from the Cir­rus Own­ers and Pilots Asso­ci­a­tion, who lives in Duluth, Andy Niemey­er. Andy met us and treat­ed us to the best ham­burg­ers in Duluth at The Anchor restau­rant, We had a fun lunch and good chat and then we were off to Har­bor Springs.
