Some photos from our long weekend up at Tettegouche Camp--a truly extraordinary place (old logging camp turned early environmentalist retreat, now part of the Minnesota State Park system and open to anyone who can manage to snag a reservation) of so much natural beauty and rustic ambiance that the two mile uphill hike in barely matters.

You can see more photos from our stay here, if you are curious or interested or just bored and looking for something to do...

Wow, that looks like a truly truly fabulous place! I love the way you alternated colour and black and white photos.

The last flower looks like a viburnum to me.

These photos are FANTASTIC!!!! They could use these to promote tourism in the area. Stunning! I'm an indoor girl, but even I wanted to go. :)

Jacqui--thanks for clueing me in on the unidentified flower--I have a wild flower guide but was unable to find that one and I was thinking it was likely something that was a transplant since it is located right around the cabins...

such beautiful photographs. what a calm and tranquil place it seems.

Holly said...

It was calm and tranquil and hard to leave. It was the sort of place where you have no idea what time of day it is and you really do not care--just go with your own internal rhythms. We will be booking again for next year, for sure. In fact, we may be booking every year for the remainder of our lives...

I love you blog and am an avid reader of it. I was recently relocated From Oregon to Minneapolis for a new job. I was thrilled to see you are based in MN and even more thrilled to see your pictures of this State Park. I thought it might be a nice introduction to MN and take my husband and two kids (4 & 6) here in August (when there is some availability) I wanted to check with you - are all of the cabins "hike in" - I see you brought your little one so obviously there was no issue ... thanks in advance for the comment - amanda - ajkunz@comcast.net
