Getting off the beaten path
While on a road trip in southern Minnesota we decided to take the back roads, instead of the freeway. It wasn't long before we were on a gravel road and discovered some tents and tepees that looked interesting, so we pulled over to explore. Turns out it was a rendezvous; people spending the weekend camping like others might have lived in the late 1700's or early 1800's in this country. They were practicing archery, fire starting, mussel loading, and hatchet throwing. We would have never happened upon this interesting encounter with these delightful people had we not gotten of the expressway, and took a slower route through the country.
