Needless to say, at the end of our three-day journey, we had traversed some 150 miles, visited 7 state parks, and walked about 20 miles to see the waterfalls - we were tired! But I, for one, would say that the effort was well worth it, and I would gladly do it all again. In fact, I'd like to spend some time in the summers to come camping at each of these parks.
One thing that has occurred to me as a result of this trip is the magnificent thing that is the Minnesota State Parks. If you think about it, you cannot get a better, cheaper vacation than visiting a state park. All it costs is $25.00 for the vehicle permit, $20.00-$25.00 per night for camping, and however much you spend in gas to get there - that's it! What a great deal. And if you go to a good park, you will enjoy sightseeing that is quite simply top notch, and is not to be duplicated anywhere else in the state. In the future, I want to take as much advantage of our state parks as possible.
