We spent a weekend biking and exploring northwestern Minnesota, where, as they say, two rivers meet.
Brainerd has been the launching point of some great day trips over the years, but this time we decided to stay the whole weekend and take a closer look.
This southwestern Minnesota town offers great trails, delicious food and a huge selection of craft beers.
Miles and miles of trails in Lakeville pair well with pints at two local breweries.
Another double-header takes us to the scenic Cannon Valley Trail, where the reward is more than just the scenery.
In our first outing of the year we explore the trails of the river city at the confluence of the St.Croix and Mississippi.
