Thoughts for the Work Week Ahead

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Today, we are exploring Minnesota’s majestic Brown’s Creek Trail, which extends for six spectacular miles from my home Gateway Trail to the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway in Stillwater.

About two miles of the Brown's Creek State Trail is immediately adjacent to Brown's Creek, a designated trout stream with a dense broadleaf forest canopy. One mile of the trail corridor parallels the St. Croix River, with spectacular views of the National Scenic Riverway. This is Minnesota's only river in the federal Wild and Scenic Rivers system.

The trail also passes by an audio listening station, historical markers and buildings plus winds along local parks, golf courses, and a community with historical significance.

Clap Hands, Here's Chuckie

You never know who is going to show up at Goose Station Central.  Today, it was Chuckie, Bon Bon Acres’ resident groundhog.  The little guy has come a long way over the past three months when it comes to his interactions with humans.  At the start of the summer, he would only come down as far as the apple tree in the backyard but I am slowly winning his trust. 

Chuckie has some big shoes to fill.  A few years back, we had a woodchuck here I named “Sunny” who was nearly tame.  I loved her so much.  She had babies once and the entire family of five lived under the gazebo for one summer.  She was an extraordinary creature as she was so friendly.  The last time we saw here was when she went under the barn for her winter torpor.  I never saw her again.  😢

As groundhogs only live to around the age of six, I would wager Chuckie is her grandson.

Goose Station Central

At Bon Bon Pond we adore Canada Geese and are thrilled to presently play host to a gaggle of 52. For many years, I have dreamed of having a beautiful swing that would overlook their feeding ground so I could sit and watch my beloved friends. A very special thanks to my buddy Jeff for making this dream come true on Sunday.

Introducing Goose Station Central. My favorite spot on earth.
