Even the mighty start small...

On Sunday, we decided to head to Itaska State Park. None of us had been there before, so we thought this would be a great opportunity! We visited the Headwaters, drove the Wilderness Trail and climbed Aiton Fire Tower. It was a beautiful day, with the sun shining and temperatures were above 60 degrees. I got a little camera happy at the park, taking over 220 pictures… I thought I would share just a couple of my favorites. Costumes of Yester-Year postponed until tomorrow.

Marsha - do you know what this fuzzy yellow pine tree is?!

It is a tamarac tree, a deciduous conifer, which turns a brilliant gold before losing its needles each fall so not a true evergreen. I fell in love with them on an autumn vacation to Itasca about 10 years ago and bought one for my backyard. It is really gold right now I need to take a photo for the blog.

I love the road trip and you have some pretty great photos...proves Jennifer might have some competetion in the photo business :)
