#145 - Little House in the Big Woods

We spent the day driving along the Mississippi in MN & WI. We took a really beautiful hike on the bluffs in Red Wing, drove through the birthplace of waterskiing, visited the town where Grumpy Old Men was filmed & saw Laura Ingalls-Wilder's birthplace.

 

In case you are wondering, its not the real house but a reproduction on the actual land. Since she didn't write the books until she was in her 60's I'm sure the original cabin was long gone before she was popular. You can find Ingalls & Wilder graves in the local cemeteries too.
