Snowshoeing outside the Minneapolis St Paul area seems to have never been better. We have had above average snowfall this year which has made it ideal. Having a bed and breakfast in Prescott really affords us the best of all worlds in the winter time.
Yesterday Deb and I decided to go have a little outdoor adventure. So after our guests left for the day to go skiing at Afton Alps (only 11 miles away), we loaded up our snowshoes and headed to Carpenter Nature Center (1 mile away as the crow flies). 5 minutes after leaving the Arbor Inn, we were on the trails. Talk about awesome….With over 7 miles of trails, not to mention endless option on snowshoes, you can really have a blast. It was a holiday and we did not see one other person while we were out. Also we should mention that there is no fee for the use of this great nature area.
So if a nice quiet day with nature sounds like fun, strap on some snow shoes after a four course breakfast at the inn and head across the river. Heck, we could even tell you how to get there on foot if you really feel adventurous.
Almost forgot to mention just how great the hot tub felt when we got back home.
