Northern Minnesota. My beloved Minnesota. There is nothing like renting a cabin in the woods and getting up early in the morning and sitting at a kitchen window with coffee and wating the sun come up over the lake. Great for getting back in touch with nature. I miss Minnesota so much.
The world's largest mill -- the Washburn A. Mill -- ground enough flour in a day to make 12 million loaves of bread. The Minneapolis building now houses the Mill City Museum, which re-creates old-school flour production days with period equipment, railroad cars and a floor-by-floor tour in a giant freight elevator. The glass elevator rises from the rubble of Mill Ruins Park, with the iconic Gold Medal flour sign overhead.
