    ARE THERE ANY PEDESTRIANS AROUND LOOKS KIND OF LONESOME, BUT A NICE VIEW COMING UP. HANG IN THERE, LOOKS LIKE 2 TO GO BEFORE YOU GET YOU FEET WET WITH SALT WATER.

  2. CJ in MN says:

    We do love our trails…

    and pop, of course.

    • Patty says:

      Yup – amazing that despite our looong winters, Minneapolis/St. Paul is the #1 city in the USA for bicyclists…we NEED our trails!

      ps….you could be in washington state by weeks end Matt…..Looks like late august – early September people are in the running for the Pool…..any late entries…may hit me at mattwalkingpool@yahoo.com will post updates when the walking man hits washington. One foot in front of the other ….it is almost a check on the bucket list of life.

        Jeff, looks like Matt crossed into Washington state over the weekend, (zoom into the little map)

        • Jeff says:

          NAA….Montana, idaho, washington, oregon….Just left Montana and walked into Idaho last night or yesterday late.
          He cant be in washington yet. Double check brother. Swear on my kids.

            Jeff’s right. I live in the “panhandle” of N. Idaho, and believe me, it DOES exist. ;-) Ten miles West, and I’m in Washington — 50 miles East, and I’m in Montana. Matt only has about 60 – 70 miles until he hits the Eastern Washington “Palouse” region, where it’s almost wheat harvest time. Very different terrain than the last 100 miles. At the fast pace he’s keeping, he will be through Idaho in 2 or 3 days!

        Darnit!

    bet no mountains near the ped paths in Minnesota :-)

  5. Candice In Alabama says:

    Matt – I bet the vistas here are beautiful to behold! Safe walking too! I think all states should try and incorporate walking paths. I say try – because I know the economy is bad and funds are low!

    • Lori says:

      We’ve already done that in Washington, Idaho & Montana. Google: “Centennial Trail”, “Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes” and “Route of the Hiawatha” :-)

  6. Jim in AR via MN says:

    I believe that is a lefse stand right ahead…and no doubt Sweet Martha’s Cookies…and please lutefisk and Swedish sausage and Swedish meatball’s with mashed potatoes/gravy…oh darn…I guess we’re not in Minnesota anymore…uff da…you betcha…

  7. Anna says:

    Happy to see MN sets the standard for excellence. :-D

  8. MN Roxanne says:

    We do have some great trails here around the state…

  9. jay MN says:

    I love our trails here in Minnesota! Lot of them here in the SE MN area as well.

    Great Falls has a great paved trail system along the missouri river – that takes you to Giant State Park & Roe River (smallest river), Lewis & Clark Interpative Center, and Many vantage points to see the falls from several locations (40 plus miles of trail ways). Unfortunately he oppted to go straight into town rather than detour slightly to enjoy the walk.
