Wildlife sightings along the trails are frequent and common. The silent aspect of the sport of Nordic skiing is perfect for wildlife observation since the animals are not easily disturbed by the quiet approach of a skier. Deer are abundant and the chance of seeing them is very high. Winter sightings of beaver squirrels rabbits and fox or coyote are possible. The birds who remain in the area during winter are everywhere: eagles crows hawks a wide variety of finches chickadees jays nuthatches and woodpeckers fill the woods and grasslands. This past winter in addition to the many other owls who live here there was an influx of the great Snowy Owls who usually remain north of the border in Canada. Due to a cyclically bad year for voles in Canada the beautiful birds have migrated further south into Minnesota to find a better source of food. They are spectacular to see and silent in flight so keep your eyes open and watch for them. There are many informational sites on the internet to explore before arriving for a Minnesota vacation. The Minnesota DNR site is loaded with information regarding the exploration of the thousands of acres of public lands within the state. Other area websites offer full information on lodging options and as well as events calendars that explain upcoming events and activities in the surrounding communities.
Minnesota winters are filled with activities and festivals celebrating the season! There are so many reasons to plan a Minnesota winter vacation that the only difficulty is deciding what to do first. From ice fishing to snowmobiling and a dozen other activities the entire family will enjoy the experience. While some folks prefer the rush of the wind on their faces as they race along the 1200 miles of snowmobile trails which interconnect rural communities in the Breezy Point area others prefer to experience the quiet natural setting at a more sedate pace by gliding along beautifully groomed ski trails or striking out into the pristine forests with a set of snowshoes strapped to their feet.
