Over labor day weekend I was busy soaking in the outdoor moments before our Minnesota weather turns frigid and hurts your face when you go outside. One of the nights I went camping with some buddies I met in college. We found the perfect little island on the Saint Croix river (which it turns out is not legal to camp on islands, found that out the hard way..) and pitched our tent!
It was the cutest little island filled with rock, sand, and trees but it had the perfect clearing for our tents. It also had a sandbar swimming distance from it where all the people who canoe down the river stop to hang out and swim! We swam over there from our site and met some people and threw the ball for the dogs we had.
The cliffs out there make a stunning scene for you to take in. A night out there was the perfect thing to restore my soul and get me connected with the outdoors again. I had been missing that! Plus, this is one other thing I got to cross off my summer bucket list!
What are some things you guys did over your long weekend??
