Lake of the Woods Campground, Baudette, MN

Well our plan to spend time in the North Unit, Roosevelt NP, fell through due to logistics.  We stayed at Little Missouri State Park which is about 30 miles from Roosevelt NP thinking we would spend a day exploring the park and a day exploring Roosevelt NP.  Turns out that in order to actually get to the NP from where we were, we would have had to drive 60 miles one way! ;)  So we decided to just enjoy the state park as we had already done the south unit of Roosevelt NP.

The park borders some of the badlands and our view from Paradise was awesome!  We did hike both days we were there but not near as far as we would have liked due to the mosquitoes!!!  They ate me up and I can see this is going to be quite a challenge as we will be in mosquito country for quite some time.

After spending last night in Cando, ND, in a county park, we drove today to Baudette, MN, where we will be for the next 4 nights.  Unfortunately, it is supposed to rain most of the time and the mosquitoes I mentioned earlier followed me here!  We may do most of our exploring by Jeep!

you can see Paradise across the canyon on the right, we pretty much had the area to ourselves

Staying in the Ozarks, Roaring River State Park

Located in southwest Ozark hills, Roaring River is picturesque state park.  The river is stocked with rainbow trout right from the hatchery ...
