How we celebrate the full moon in Minnesota

ice-houses-full-moon-StaatsThis past weekend brought us the biggest and brightest full moon, and we were fortunate to have clear skies.  And since it’s Minnesota, and it’s cold here,  this is one of the most popular outdoor activities — ice fishing.   It’s still a bit unnerving to me to drive out on a frozen lake, but that’s exactly what we did on Saturday night.  What  we found was a large community of houses and people enjoying the evening with fishing and snowmobiling.  And the full moon didn’t let us down — it rose large and beautiful over a calm winter’s evening.  Later we unpacked our snowshoes and wandered through a beautiful scientific & natural area near the St. Croix River, illuminated completely by the full moon.  It was a perfect way to enjoy a beautiful Minnesota winter’s evening.
