We Went To Taylors Falls Today

We used to take our kids to the Falls to go on the paddle boat down the St Croix River. We haven't been their for years so it was fun to revisit the area.

The state park adjoins the river and the hiking trails include potholes (not the highway kind) and beautiful views of the bluffs.

The ink sketch was done with a Micron pen .

This is a quick marker sketch of the St Croix River from an overlook in the park.
