Baylor Regional Park

My first proper hike in Minnesota, now that everything is settling into place. There will be more of these, more miles on legs and ground. Aiming for 50 miles a month. We’ll see. Baylor had wide paths, maple trees providing shade in today’s 90 degrees.

Circle routes bring you back to the same points, so I break into the woods for a bit run through the old and new trees. The bugs seem to be dying down now that August has rolled in. I still look forward to November bushwacking.

It is too hot to rest in the pines and the hardwoods, but I try anyway, look the tree tops and try to sleep, but not this time. I start to walk the floating boardwalk through the Marsh, drag my hand occasionally through the green blanketed water. The cool water of Eagle Lake awaits.
