Myre-Big Island State Park

Every season is State Park season . . .

…and this is exemplified at a place like Myre-Big Island State Park. Located in Albert Lea, near the crossroads of Interstates 35 and 90, this park offers recreational splendor for snowmobilers, cross country skiiers, and snowshoers alike.

A two-hour tromp around the shoreline of the “big island” itself brought forth great beauty, solitude, and one heck of a cardio workout. And don’t worry if you don’t own your own snowshoes — the park office rents them for just $6 a pair for the day.

A regional man of mystery enjoying parks, trails, and other stuff around the great state of Minnesota!
