James camped at Frontenac State Park this weekend. It was his first night in a tent, and he slept from 8 PM to 530 AM - pretty darn good! He had a good time exploring the campground, watching other people in the park, hiking up and down the bluffs, and sleeping in the pack on my back.

We completed a one hour loop this morning, starting at our site, winding downhill to Lake Pepin... following the shore south, then climbing the slope back up. We were definitely tested by the altitude changes... steep and long, and I think we had a lot of lactic acid in our leg muscles for much of the hike. James slept almost the entire time. I am really out of shape.

When we woke up this morning it was somewhat cool, thus the blanket cocoon pictured here.

Hopefully we can do this often - all went well and by all appearances JD liked it a lot.

Wow! I've spent the last hour clicking the random blog button and really wondering what the heck is wrong with the human race - then I ended up here. Nice job and I really enjoyed the post about fly fishing in SE MN. Don't think too hard!

Thanks for the encouragement... glad you visited this site. I don't dare try that random blog exercise.

According to your profile, it looks like you get out quite a bit, so I'll say good luck fishing. Enjoy the land and the water!

really going to miss checking the sites this summer. I might be able to check on patts' computer. I will have to get the site addresses for home. I agree with Eric, but then of course, I am biased!

Love that last picture of James!
Great that he's getting to spend quality time in the outdoors -
no better place for a little kid to be! Sure will be fun seeing him this summer...
