Several weeks ago I was reading an issue of Outside Magazine and noticed a small blurb about Nerstrand Big Woods State Park. I checked out the park website later in the day and concluded that it was worth a trip over to the park. Last Friday was a beautiful day and probably the last nice day we are going to have for the next week so my wife and I decided to drive over to the park and check it out.
The Hepatica were just starting to bloom but it will be a couple of weeks before the flowers really start to bloom. The park is noted for its abundance of Trout Lilies particularly the Dwarf Trout Lily which is a rare species found in only three Minnesota counties.
Hidden Falls was flowing although I expected more water during the spring melt.
