Spencer's Pit Stops: Minneopa State Park

Happy Friday!
This past week my humans and I went to one of the local state parks for a hike. We wanted to see if the waterfalls were open with the warm weather we've been having.

First, we came upon the upper waterfall. We looked and looked but were only able to fine three little areas where the falls that were open. Even the stream part was mostly frozen. But I wouldn't recommend ice skating.

It sure was a peaceful day for a hike! There were many people out and about taking in the beautiful weather. What more could we ask for in March then sun days and temps in the 60's.

As we were hiking, I was able to explore a little.


The lower falls was starting to separate. It was amazing how it was starting melting, yet was still frozen. I could have sat there all day soaking up the rays.

Stretching my legs, hearing the birds, smelling the fresh air, and feeling the melting snow beneath my paws was amazing.

Spring is definitely right around the corner and I look forward visiting more of Minnesota's great state parks.


  1. FAB time of year Spencer and nice to be out and about. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. We are happy it is drying out as we have been a mess with all the dirt and mud around. I bet the falls are thawing now.

  3. Beautiful pics and so right about being able to get outdoors and hear the birds. The waterfalls are just as lovely frozen as running. You're lucky to have such a pretty park to visit!

  4. So glad spring is coming - pretty soon those trails will be all green and blooming!

  5. What a beautiful hike! How cool that the snow is almost gone for the falls are still frozen! Love Dolly
