Sauk Lake

Last weekend we took advantage of the last of the 80*F temperatures before the weather cooled. We drove up to Sauk Lake on Saturday morning and came home less then 24 hours later.  
 A little jet skiing, tubing and camping.

Zoey had her fill of swimming in the lake.

  We did find a not so nice surprise at the lake. The neighbor decided to take it upon himself to spray 100 weed kill on the shore line. He killed all the tall grass that was holding in the beach. As a result of the high water, the beach is eroding fast. Needless to say, we were not happy with this. The neighbor refused to acknowledge that in fact he was the one spaying and has been for years. We have even caught him spraying but never said anything. This was taking it to the next level.

Gateway Bike Trail

Tuesday, Steve and I biked on the Gateway Trail that run from St. Paul to Stillwater. We never made it to the end but we did end up biking 26 miles round trip. That was enough miles for us. Next time we plan to finish the bike trail, starting were we left off and biking to Stillwater and back. This will be a really pretty fall ride with all the trees that line the trail. It use to be an old rail road and they finished the connection to St. Paul.
