The Ultimate MN Bucket List


Published:

This is your summer, your year, your decade—however long it takes—to be a real Minnesotan, to do all those classic local things you’ve wanted to do but never have. Here’s our list of must-do’s, complete with everything you need to do them.


ADVENTURE

1. Hike all the way around Lake Superior (see sidebar below).

2. Find a Showy Lady Slipper, the state flower. Your best bet: Lady Slipper Scenic Byway, between Blackduck and Highway 2, in late June. • ladyslipperscenicbyway.org

3. Harvest wild rice. First, you’ll need to get a permit. Then, head to one of the 700 lakes boasting Minnesota’s state grain, concentrated in Aitkin, Itasca, Cass, and St. Louis counties. • dnr.state.mn.us1854treatyauthority.org

4. Watch the start of the John Beargrease sled-dog marathon. beargrease.com

5. Drive the Great River Road down to Iowa. • mnmississippiriver.com

6. See a moose (while you still can). Your best bet: Try the Gunflint and Arrowhead trails near Grand Marais in October—mating season.

7. Hike out to the Witch Tree in Grand Portage. Ask for a guide at the Grand Portage National Monument Heritage Center. • nps.gov/grpo

8. Visit the Northwest Angle, the surveying error that became the northernmost point in the Lower 48;  it’s accessable only by crossing Lake of the Woods or cutting through Canada.

9. Take a sauna in the Ely Steam Bath—one of only two family-owned saunas in the United States. Czech/Finn approved. • 127 First Ave. S., Ely; 218-365-2984

10. Canoe or Huck Finn the Mississippi River, from the headwaters in Itasca State Park all the way to the Gulf of Mexico. Pack accordingly.

11. Run the Twin Cities Marathon. Love every uphill step of the final Summit Avenue stretch. • tcmevents.org

12. Collect agates along the shore of Lake Superior at Good Harbor Bay.

13. Go dogsledding in Ely, the sled-dog capital of the world. • dogsledding.com

14. Stay in cabin 26 at Burntside Lodge, located on a solitary point extending into Burntside Lake. • burntside.com

15. Catch an eelpout during the International Eelpout Festival in Walker. • eelpoutfestival.com

16. Bike the full Root River bike trail through the limestone bluffs and rolling hills surrounding Lanesboro. • rootrivertrail.org

17. See the Northern Lights. Get as far north and away from lights as possible and wait for midnight, when they tend to shine brightest.

18. Drive Highway 1. Begin in Ely, end when you hit Lake Superior. Accelerate through the curves.

19. Walk across the Mississippi River headwaters in Itasca State Park. • dnr.state.mn.us/state_parks/itasca

20. See the Runestone in Alexandria (bonus: solve the mystery). • runestonemuseum.org

21. Explore the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Stay in the Tall Pines Yurt on Hooker Lake and book a fishing trip with the Boundary Waters Guide Service. • boundarycountry.com; boundarywatersguideservice.com

22. Camp on Isle Royale and experience the solitude of one of the country’s least-visited National Parks. • nps.gov/isro

23. Visit the Lost 40, 114 acres of old-growth trees in the Big Fork State Forest overlooked by loggers in 1882. Find the 300-year-old white pine. • dnr.state.mn.us/snas

24. Sink into an outdoor hot tub during a blizzard. Best place: beside Lake Superior, mere feet from the cozy Sweetgrass Cove Guesthouse near Grand Portage. Get a massage in your room the next day. • sweetgrasscove.com
 



WHAT IT’S LIKE: To hike all the way around Lake Superior

By author Mike Link of Willow River

My wife, Kate Crowley, and I were walking the Superior Hiking Trail one day in 2008, discussing our retirement. After running the Audubon Center for almost 40 years, we were wondering what comes next for us, when suddenly inspiration hit. Had anyone ever hiked around the entire shore of Lake Superior? As it turns out, we’re the only couple to do it. We started on April 29, 2010, hiking 1,555 miles on trails, the shoreline, and sometimes in the lake itself. We spent our days walking with the occasional stop in nearby communities to give presentations on keeping our largest resource of fresh water clean. At night we camped. On September 18, 2010—145 days later—we finished our full-circle hike around Lake Superior. The amazing thing is that neither of us ever had a day when we woke up and didn’t want to continue hiking. In fact, on the last day, I thought, “So what are we going to do next?



Garrison Keillor’s MN Bucket List

1. Walk across a frozen lake on a moonlit night with someone who is dear to you. Having done it once, you’ll want to do it again. Resist the urge to write a poem about this. Just do it.

2. Go to Sunday morning service at Boe Chapel at St. Olaf College and sit in the middle of the crowd and sing, blending your voice with the voices around you. Learn “The Frozen Logger,” “Girl from the North Country,” and “Children of the Heavenly Father,” and sing those, too.

3. The foundational Minnesota experience is to do a hard job for no money—visit the sick, tutor children who are struggling, help the homeless, build a dyke to save a town from flooding—which connects you to reality and lifts you up from narcissism. Minnesota is not for narcissists.

4.  Paddle a canoe down a small river, such as the Cannon, the Crow, the Rock, the Rum—watch out for barbed wire—or the upper Mississippi just below Lake Bemidji, and when you come to a shallow, still pool, lie in it naked and let the minnows nibble on you. Make sure you’re not easily visible from a road or house, lest you be subjected to public humiliation.

5. An hour or two before sunset, ride a bike down a county road out on the prairie, somewhere up between Thief River Falls and Moorhead. Stop now and then and feel the light fade toward gloaming.

6. Go to a church supper in a small town—a spaghetti dinner, fish fry, bean feed, barbecue, or potluck—and and offer to help with the cleanup. They won’t let you, but it’s a good way of meeting good people.   

7. Read Winter Dreams by F. Scott Fitzgerald, Sinclair Lewis’s Main Street, and Morte D’Urban by J.F. Powers. Reread Little House in the Big Woods and Little House on Plum Creek. Read Louis Jenkins.

8. Load up a manure spreader by hand and get on the tractor and broadcast it on a field of corn stubble. Remember to head into the wind.

9. Put a pot of water to boil on the stove. When it’s boiling, go out and pick sweet corn in the field. Husk it, boil it, and sit down and eat it, slathered with butter—15 minutes from the stalk to the table.

WHAT IT’S LIKE: To crowd surf with Mayor R.T. Rybak

By Duluth Mayor Don Ness

Last year, Trampled By Turtles had just come out with their new album and had a show at First Avenue. R.T. came up the idea that we would make a duel proclamation, declaring it “Trampled By Turtles Day,” which we did. So earlier that day, I was at R.T.’s State of the City address in north Minneapolis. He came to me and said, “We gotta stage dive at the Turtles show!” I’m like, “I’m not sure if that’s a great idea.” He’s an old pro at it. But I’m a lot bigger than he is. And sure enough, at my first true crowd-surfing attempt, I didn’t even crowd surf! I stage dived, but I didn’t surf. I just took out the first three rows of concertgoers.



Cathy Wurzer’s MN Bucket List

1.  Pipestone National Monument.

2.  Mystery Cave/Forestville State Park. The cave looks really cool. In fact, it is cool: 48 degrees all year.

3.  Ice fish in an honest-to-God icehouse on Lake Mille Lacs, the tricked-out kind with beds, lounge chairs, a kitchen, and an entertainment center.

4.  Eat at Valentini’s Supper Club in Chisholm, the Holy Grail of Italian food on the Range. Get the penne with homemade Italian sausage.

5.  Take the Empire Builder train from St. Paul to Glacier National Park.

6.  Ride on an iron-ore carrier—a laker like the elegant Edward L. Ryerson or the old Arthur M. Anderson—as you go under Duluth’s Aerial Lift Bridge.

7.  Visit Split Rock Lighthouse in November, when the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald is commemorated. (The beacon is lit and the lighthouse bell is rung 29 times.)

8.  Tour the former National Farmers’ Bank in Owatonna, designed by Louis Sullivan in 1908. It’s a great American building.

9.  Bloedow Bakery in Winona, at the southern end of Highway 61. Mondays are Bavarian Cream. Tuesdays: Lemon. Wednesdays: Apple. And that’s just the filled doughnuts.

10.  Go fishing. “Still” fishing, not trolling or fly-fishing. Get a rod and bobber, and just sit on a dock or the banks of a lake or in an anchored boat. Put a worm or minnow on the hook, cast, and let the bobber sit there. It’s meditative until that bobber drops.

WHAT IT’S LIKE: To be the butt of an Al Franken joke

By Eden Prairie orthopedic physician Robby Bershow

Shortly after Franken wrote Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot in ’96, my friends and I—all in the Democratic Elves student club at the Blake School—wanted to hear him speak at Macalester. One of us called Al’s mom, who finagled us in. Afterward, there was a Q&A session. Now, Al doesn’t talk a lot about Blake—he’s kind of guarded about his personal life—but someone asked him about going to Blake. So he says, “Well, in the 1950s, they started letting in Jews to raise the SAT scores.” And then, very quickly, he points to me and says, “Which is how you got in.” I felt extremely honored to be the butt of the joke. The next year, I was interviewing at Harvard and I happened to mention the book signing. Turns out the person I was interviewing with was Al’s roommate at Harvard and was actually at that book signing. He remembered me, so the joke probably helped me get into college.


Wing Young Huie’s MN Bucket List

1.  Stand beneath the Aerial Lift Bridge in Canal Park in Duluth. At night. While it rises.

2.  Eat a Spam sushi roll at the United Noodles deli in Minneapolis’s Seward neighborhood.

3.  Compete in one of the public Ping-Pong games frequently held by community organizer Matt Barthelemy in parks, plazas, and the basement of his home in Minneapolis’s Whittier neighborhood.

4.  Browse the photography section at Midway Used and Rare Bookstore in St. Paul.

5.  Feast at the Hmongtown Marketplace food court in St. Paul. Afterward, watch Hmong videos (bullfighting!).

6.  Learn a new stitch at the knitting mecca of StevenBe on Chicago Avenue in Minneapolis.

7.  Stroll in a neighborhood you’ve avoided.

8.  Order three coneys with everything and a pitcher of beer at the Gopher Bar in St. Paul.

WHAT IT’S LIKE: To appear in C.J.’s column

By Tim Gihring

You’re never surprised to appear in C.J.’s Star Tribune column. Not because of the flagrancy of what you’ve done, but because of what C.J. does just before she hangs out your laundry: she calls you. “Hi, this is C.J.,” she says, and then she does the last thing you’d expect from a gossip. She tells you exactly what she’s about to print. She’s old-fashioned that way. She lets you know not just when she’s going to pull down your shorts, but how. It’s so upfront, so not behind your back—like she’s simply double-checking the announcement you want to place in the church bulletin—that you roll with it. We’re Minnesotans, after all, and figure that if someone is going through this much trouble to question our judgment, we probably deserve it. It can be galvanizing. I’ve made three appearances in C.J.’s column, and each time I’ve felt my ego be stripped away like old paint; pretense eviscerated. What grows back is new, thicker skin.



Keri Noble’s MN Bucket List

1.  I’ve never been to Valleyfair. What? How have I lived in Minnesota for 12 years and never been?

2.  The Guthrie offers acting classes. I used to be in theater in high school, and the Guthrie seems like a pretty perfect place to jump back in.

3.  Skydiving—if I think about it too long, I get super nervous. But there’s a great place called Westside Skydivers, based in Winsted, and if I decide I’m going to do it,  I’d probably do it there.

4.  I don’t know why I want to take an improv class, but I do, and it’ll be at the Brave New Workshop.

5.  If you can’t beat winter, join it, right? Well, snowshoeing (is that even how you say it?) looks like the perfect winter activity, and I’ve heard it’s a good workout.

6.  The Twin Cities PedalPub. It looks totally stupid. Which is why, at some point, I really need to do it.

7.  I’ve also never really been to the Minnesota Zoo. I’ve performed there, I’ve watched movies there, but I’ve never spent an afternoon hanging with the animals. Time to change that.

8.  I’d love to hike and maybe canoe the Boundary Waters. I just can’t get with the whole camping part. Are there hotels nearby?

9.  Going up in a hot-air balloon seems like a perfectly romantic thing to do, if you pick the right day.

10.  I haven’t visited any wineries in Minnesota, which, if you know me, would seem kind of surprising.
