Today was a day for a family adventure. While it wasn't the nicest day weather-wise, we just had to get our of the house and do a little exploring. We opted to head south towards Chisholm and Hibbing, Minnesota to go for a hike and try the Boomtown Brewery.
The drive from Minnesota Highway 73 to the trailhead was probably the most adventurous part of the hike. The last 1 and 3/4 mile was on a two-track forest road that was very muddy from the recent rains. Still, the CR-V handled the drive well, though it did get quite a bit dirty. We hit the trail in wonderful fall colors.
Soon the trail made its way to the edge of a small gorge formed by the Dark River.
Boomtown and Noelle and I had a few beer as well. Then we drove over to Bob Dylan's boyhood home
