"We went for a hike. The beach was a tumble of exposed bedrock, some formations looking like model pirate ships in silhouette, but soon the gravel narrowed and an outcrop of jagged rock faced us. The girls scrambled up a well-used trail, and then I saw Grace climbing, hand over hand, up the final short rock wall. I was about to yell my customary warning, but she had summited and Bailey was on her heels. They raised their arms, the Lake Superior wind whipping their hair, and I breathed two words: their Everest." -from the text by Chris Niskanen Minnesota is home to prairies and forests, lakes and rivers, bison and gray wolf-and a treasured system of state parks. Emblems of natural history, many were created to protect an ecosystem such as the giant hardwood trees at Nerstrand Big Woods, features like the spectacular waterfalls at Gooseberry or limestone caves at Forestville, and historic structures such as the early settlement of Fort Ridgely along the Minnesota River. Recreational opportunities are equally diverse- and so are the people who pursue them. Photographer Doug Ohman visited each of Minnesotars"s sixty-six parks to capture their classic beauty, storied wildlife, and wealth of activities in all seasons. More than two hundred color photographs illustrate sixteen essays by outdoors writer Chris Niskanen, who chronicles the sights, sounds, and experiences of exploring the parks through the eyes of those who know them best-rangers, naturalists, and long-time users. There is the traveling salesman who is also an avid birdwatcher; a couple so excited about their state parks adventures that they worked geocaching into their wedding theme; and daughters on a camping trip to the rocky outcrops of Lake Superiorrs"s North Shore, a personal tale recounted by Niskanen. The result is an elegant package of memories for those who frequent the parks-and an invitation to all comers to see Minnesotars"s natural world at its best. Photographer Doug Ohmanrs"s work is featured in the Minnesota Byways series, which includesBarns of MinnesotaandCabins of Minnesota. Chris Niskanen is outdoors editor for the St. Paul Pioneer Press and also contributes toMinnesota Conservation Volunteermagazine.
