Itasca State Park

Noelle and I had days off together and so we headed west to Itasca State Park. It was my second visit but Noelle's first. Regardless, we got to see a lot of cool things together including the largest White Pine in Minnesota,

the sunset on Lake Itasca,

the Aiton Heights Fire Tower

with an amazing view from the top,

numerous small lakes,

and of course the headwaters of the Mississippi River.

Unfortunately, due to one of the thickest infestations of deer flies We've ever experienced we were unable to do much hiking. It makes for a great excuse to return again in the fall though!
