I mentioned in my post yesterday that we visited the park to take a picture next to the Checkpoint Minnesota sign. There are 12 checkpoints located in various locations in Minnesota and they offer prizes of course, but mostly I crave the hunt (some are difficult to locate) no hints given and you're on your own to locate the sign. It also keeps "cabin fever" at bay!
The word Minneopa comes from the Dakota language and is interpreted to mean "water falling twice" referring to the beautiful waterfalls of the Minneopa Creek.
Minneopa State Park virtual tour worth a look. After viewing the virtual tour it seems the new rod iron fence was recently installed.

I think it's wonderful to see they kept the original fence when they installed the larger, sturdier fence.
I'm still laughing at this sign. It reads, Warning, Please stay on the sidewalk. This area was recently seeded and should not be walked on at this time. Thank you! Park Staff. Perhaps a bit of staff humor? Where have I heard that before?!
Poor little seedlings! Brrr!
