Nice One, Minnesota

On I-90 in south eastern Minnesota there is a rest stop to beat all rest stops. It had a winding corkscrew ramp that brings cars and trucks up behind a hill. The clean bathrooms and visitor center were set into the face of the hill, away from the road. In fact, while at this rest area, you can hardly hear the road. Dozens of bird feeders were attracting all sorts of sparrows, goldfinches and chipmunks. If that was not enough, there was a trail that winds through an idyllic picnic area to an overlook with a view of a valley, with the highway winding across the ridge beyond. They take these seriously in MN.
