Girls Weekend Road-Trip to Cottonwood County

A friend’s family auction seemed a good excuse for a weekend road trip to southwestern Minnesota.

We didn’t have a lot of time to explore the area, which is a pity because the area around Lake Shetek is supposed to be really nice and I have always wanted to get to nearby Jeffers Petroglyphs.

I was a bit surprised by the fact that some of the cities along the way didn’t seem very tourist-friendly – on summer weekend afternoons we found museums, historic churches, and many businesses (all the coffee shops) closed. This was particularly true in Saint James, where tourist information of any sort seems hard to come by. Still, it's worth stopping and poking around.
