First day of rain we've had so far on this trip but clearing tomorrow. Got 15 miles in on the Mi Gi Zi trail with the dogs along before the wet stuff fell. Was a shady twisty trail through the Chipawa Nat. Forest but don't stop least you want to get eaten by the pesky mosquitoes. The rain gave us a good excuse to drive to town and imbibe on some Laughing Cow Zanzibar dark chocolate ice cream, and for Cindy to get some laundry done and catch up on some reading. So far we are enjoying Bemidji immensely. University town with lots of coffee shops and a craft brewery with a very good selection of beers, and a good grocery store and liquor store with reasonable wine prices. Tomorrow a trip to Itaska State Park.
