I Just got back from Itasca State Park for my Naturalist Corps training. The park is big, old (established in 1891), and full of interesting plants and sites of interest. While I didn't have a whole lot of time to explore the park, I did get to check out the Headwaters of the Mississippi River.
In addition I saw many interesting wildflowers in bloom. Trillium, wild ginger, yellow lady-slipper and the rarest orchid in Minnesota the Ram's head orchid. I plan on visiting again, preferably at a time when I can return with Noelle.
