St. Croix River

After Hans finished his preliminary exam he wanted to to some quality family bonding time. This usually involves nature. So off we went to Taylor Falls. We didn't see any waterfalls, but we did get to hike around the St. Croix River.

I think Riley was in the process of channeling his Chi

There is no better place for boys then among dirt, rocks and poison ivy.

This was actually a dangerous pose. Just below them is a 20 foot drop off. The sacrifices one makes for a great daddy daughter pic.

The St. Croix River.
In French, one would pronounce it "crwa" like trois (you know, un-deux-trois; the number three), but in Minnesota we pronounce it "kroy" like Troy. Don't ask me why, I'm not a native.
