This is the second post today. I rode around Wilderness Drive that goes around Itasca State Park. It was late this afternoon and I was trying to beat the predicted rain.

There won't be a lot of words in this post except for the captions on the pictures.

|Bench overlooking Elk Lake.|
Some people used to think this
lake was the beginning of the
