Got to spend a little time at one of my favorite places to boot around this weekend, the bluffs and river area below the Arcola Highbridge. The bridge in its current form, was built just after the turn of the century and stands about 185' above the St. Croix river. The land surrounding the bridge on the MN side is administered by the NPS and is worth exploring when you have a chance. It's a beautiful area in any season and interesting historical remnants abound.
Stepping off too close to a heat absorbing black log will get your foot wet.
Otter track, Pug track
A great little waterfall that flows from a spring all year
