This one came in the form of a letter. The image from the front of the card is pictured here -- a Monet.
The next installment of the Heidi adventure comes without a post card because in between Michigan and Minnesota there's not much worth getting a post card of... Unless you want to see corn fields. :)
After I left Warren Dunes, my trip took a slight turn for the worse. I had been traveling about 8 hours when I decided I had enough. I drove in to Austin, MN, better known as "Spam USA", which they proudly boast with signs on every light post.
I drove to the campground only to find it 5 feet under water. Yes, it had flooded due to all the rain we were having...
So, back on the road to Albert Lea State Park. I set up camp and ate dinner to a magnificent light show from the fire flies. I curled into bed with thoughts of a nice mountain bike ride in the morning. Just as I was falling asleep, the thunder crashed overhead and the lightning brightened the sky. I almost had a heart attack!
The storm lasted most of the night, but I did finally fall asleep. When I woke up I was in a huge puddle. I have to admit my spirits were low. Nothing a bike ride wouldn't cure, I thought...
The sign read "no mountain biking -- trails closed due to flooding". So, back in the car I went!
I was not in a good mood, but as I drove the skies cleared and my spirit rose. I stopped in Blue Mound State Park where I met Tammy, Kevin and Mark. We went on a hike and found bison!!! They are big animals!!! I drove a little farther and dried out. I am happy again. :)
