To stay cool this Sunday, we got up early to explore the trail up to the base of Sugar Loaf , Winona’s major landmark rock. Nice woodsy switchbacks on the way up, well groomed trails esp. at the base of the rock, and of course, the higher up we got, the more spectacular the views. Besides seeing downtown and East End Winona, we could (once we got high enough) see West Burns Valley, and some of Pleasant Valley. There are lots of valleys around here, and I still have trouble keeping them straight. We even saw the barn and silo of the “hippie farm” Husband live at in the 70s.
Here are some of the sights:
On the way down (9:30-ish) we met several people headed up, and thought “You’re going to be warm up there”.
How have you been staying cool this weekend in the 90 Plus temperatures?
