After my hike of Barn Bluff, I went to a grocery store in Red Wing to get some lunch. The Cuban ham sandwich I ended up getting was very good. Then it was a drive south to Frontenac State Park to get me some Hiking Club miles. Today would be my first Hiking Club hike in nearly 3 years.
The hike started at the picnic area with a nice view of Lake Pepin.
When I approached the picnic area, I still felt the urge to explore a bit and so I set off on a trail that led towards the campground. I then descended steeply to the wooded shore of Lake Pepin where I caught glimpses of power boats speeding by.
