Lanesboro Minnesota

Just in the nick of time, before my allergies hit for their yearly fight, my bestie and I met in Lanesboro, Minnesota for a girls weekend. Lanesboro is a quaint little tourist town,  I have heard of this town for years as being a "destination" town, being best known for it's biking trails and being the B & B capital of Minnesota.

By the time we made our plans, the B & B's were booked, so we stayed in a neighboring town.  
All of the countryside, towns and scenery were so worth the trip. 

This bridge once was for trains, and is now part of the Root River Trail System.

This bridge wasn't part of the trail system, but I thought it was pretty.

 As we walked along a small stretch of the Root River, we had to take a picture of this back yard that belonged to one of the B & B's.

A beautiful waterfall, just below a campground.

Do you love waterfalls as much as I do?

When we were done walking, we took a driving tour through town.  
We went to the highest point we could see in town which was a church, and found this amazing view of the waterfall.

 So many unique stores with unique items! Like this repurposed tire that is now a Rooster Planter!

Of course, we had to stop at an orchard while we were out. These Red Delicious apples were such a deep red, that from a distance they almost looked chocolate!
We were NOT allowed to pick apples, only buy what was in the store. I had never heard of this before, can you pick apples at your orchard?

We also went to a local Eagle viewing spot. We weren't treated with eagles, but did get to see an amazing view!

If you have the opportunity to visit, I highly recommend it!


  1. That is so strange about not being able to pick apples. Your photo is great! :-)
    I love the rooster too.
    Your trip sounds like a great adventure. Thank you for taking us along.

  2. Love all your photos - the waterfalls are my favorite! Strange about the apples - some places are sticklers!!!!

  3. What fabulous bridges. I would love to go there! Cheers from Carole's chatter

  4. For some reason I've missed your posts. Anyway I enjoyed this post so much. I do love waterfalls and that one was quite pretty. Cool looking chicken and yummy apples and a gorgeous view. What's not to enjoy.
