It was perfect today, warm and NO fog!

Did you guys hit up Fitgers? That one picture looks like it was taken from their parking lot.  :HiFive

Great photos. Thanks! Brings back memories for sure. We did a short trip up the north shore, north of Duluth, and found some great scenery and water falls. Good stuff!

Well....we made it to Sioux Falls. We only had to take two detours due to flooding!  Just when I thought northern Minnesota was bad we drove through SW Minnesota.  If they get much more rain there will be a ton of houses taking in water.

Just got back from South Dakota, I'd highly recommend everyone make it out there at least once to wheel! Had a blast, everyone made it home under their own power, only some minor body damage to one rig and a couple of beat up tie rods.

Spent quite a few vacations there when I was a kid, and we took a family vacation there about 3-4 years ago.  Excellent area.  I didn't realize there were offroad trails there.  Sounds like you had a great vacation.

Jason, there are a lot of trails up there but they are kinda hard to find. The group I went with are friends with a Jeep Jamboree trail guide that guides them around every year for free.

Sounds like you had a good time.   I knew you would with that group.   Wish I could have gone again this year.
