Mississippi River Series- Tugboat

Just north of I-90 in Minnesota, on the bluffs above the Mississippi is a park with several great overlooks of the river. There is a $5 daily fee at the park.
Park at the picnic area. Walk through the picnic area on the gravel path. At the map, go left. Follow the path to the lookout over the “Mighty Miss”.

Enjoy the view…Maybe you’ll spot a tugboat below. After sitting on the bench (the bench is now gone), take 40 paces back down the trail from the edge of the overlook platform. Spot the “horned dragon” slithering up the hill fifteen paces off the trail at 100 degrees. Slay the dragon to find the Tugboat letterbox. This box is not winter friendly. The terrain is a little steep so use caution.
