17 Aug Hooked on Garrison
Garrison, North Dakota: It is true. I’m hooked on Garrison, just like their motto states.
I recently told Ryan, “I think I could live up here. Maybe we should move here!” It seems I may say that about all our stops, but that’s a good thing, right?!?! Ryan, normally the “glass half full” person of our relationship put a little water on my idea when he reminded me, “Yeah, but what about the winter?” He knows I’m not really a winter person and for me, it’s the necessary evil to get back to spring, summer, and fall! Problem solved, this can be my summer home! Oh wait, I guess as long as we harvest up here, it can be for a few weeks anyway!
So, what are some of the non harvest things I’m loving about this area? For one, it is so green and its August! I’m sure this area experiences its share of droughts, but for now I’ll just pretend it’s always so lush. It’s an outdoorsy person’s dream with the river, wetlands, lake, miles of trails and shoreline. It also meets my personal continuing education requirements with lots of historical or nature sites. The town is quite nice too with its downtown full of businesses, churches, and a clean park. You may have noticed the recurring theme of how this mama appreciates a nice park while away from her own yard/neighborhood!
Below are some highlights of our area experiences.
