The Red River Valley in western Minnesota, the flattest place on earth (yes, really, I read a sign that told me so). For a mountain boy from Colorado it certainly did seem to me to be very flaaat.
I stopped for a snack and cold drink at this combination diner, bar, general store and bait shop in the town of Osage in the lake district and known for its fishing. I couldn't help but laugh at their sign, even though I was hesitant to eat in their restaurant.
Msgr. Raun and I spend the night in this beautiful town of Park Rapids. This lake is one of many in the area and is in the heart of the town. I guess this makes the geese urban dwellers.
