The Baptism River runs through the park, making it’s way down to the lake. And on the Baptism River lies Illgen Falls. Here are a few images of the Baptism River, […]

Butter-And-Eggs … Yummm

During my recent Minnesota trip, I found a new wildflower for me, the “Butter-and-Eggs” (Linaria vulgaris): This beauty is in the Figwort family, and also known as Toadflax.
