Today Noelle, Sierra and I decided that we needed to take advantage of some beautiful spring weather and explore our new northern Minnesota home a bit. We opted to head down to the Kabetogama Lake area of Voyageurs National Park to do some exploring. Our first stop was the Kabetogama Lake Visitor Center. It's closed this time of the year, but with keys to the building I was able to open it up and show Noelle and Sierra around a bit. We also explored the grounds surrounding the visitor center. There are a few historic buildings near the visitor center including an old ranger station that is now used as a residence,
There is also a beaver lodge built into the bank of the lake just outside the visitor center.
After leaving our picnic site, we headed back towards Highway 53. Along the way we stopped at the Beaver Pond Overlook Trail to do a short hike.
