A trip to Hammond Hill State Forest

We went to Hammond Hill State Forest in nearby Dryden.

It was a pleasant hike, though a bit muddy. We saw all kinds of nature, from frog eggs to hawks and wildflowers. Here's a flower we saw, it's a Round Leaf Yellow Violet:

In the upper part of the park you climb to a pretty impressive height. Through the trees you look down upon the surrounding countryside, including Dryden Lake:

Driving home, we passed by the birthplace of John Miller, the first governor of North Dakota.
