The Cannon River in Faribault is a real pretty place to take a nice walk. Our nose work trials were close to the river so we went out for a short walk during the lunch break. It was very hot and humid, but the walking trail was about fifty percent shade.
We are right in an industrial area, but the river is still a really pretty spot for a walk. Down the path a ways, we found a little dam. Mom was going to have us pose on the bridge over the dam, but she worried we might fall in, so we stayed on the side.
As we looked across the Cannon River, we saw the Faribault Woolen Mill which has been around since the 1800’s. At one point in time they produced about half of the wool blankets in the entire USA.
When Mom was a little girl, the family would sometimes take a Sunday trip to Faribault and always stopped to shop at the mill store. We didn’t stop as with the heat, a wool blanket was not real appealing, but Mom was happy to see it is still there.
Now I will leave you with my best happy, tongue out Tuesday shot from our little walk!
