Lanesboro, Minnesota

Another 100 miles of rolling hills and cornfields and we are in the beautiful town of Lanesboro, Minnesota, the Bed and Breakfast Capital of Minnesota.  We are staying at the Eagles Cliff Campground on the scenic Root River a few miles outside of town.  We are visiting my old boyhood friend Gordon Tindall who is living here with his wife Val.  It has been about 30 years since I last saw Gordon so it is quite a special reunion.  Gordon has a dinner in town called "The Spud Boy" that he personally restored and it is really a work of art.  Gordon is renowned in the diner restoration world, this is the third diner he has saved from destruction and lovingly restored.
We rented bikes a took a ride on the rail trail along the Root River.
Lanesboro is a beautiful town and if you are ever nearby, well worth visiting.
