We pulled over and stopped somewhere in Central Minnesota for the night. When we got up yesterday morning, we headed for the Lake Country Scenic Byway or route 34. We ventured off onto some side roads, some of which ended up being dirt roads and here we found the reason why Minnesota is called the Land 'O Lakes. They boast having 11, 842 lakes in all, most of them concentrated in the northern part of the state. We counted the number of lakes we passed before crossing over into North Dakota...the final tally being 50. I guess we have some more exploring to do! Today's blog image is of Bottle Lake.
